Just right for the final wintery nights as we get closer to spring, kids teepee tents offer a fun way to enjoy indoor camping in the comfort of home. Whether you are looking for something different to do over the weekend or you have a budding adventurer who adores camping (real and pretend), camping can be enjoyed pretty much anywhere if you have the right equipment.
What makes indoor camping so fun is that it gives you and your adventure-seeker all the benefits of sleeping in a tent, without the worry of rain, bugs, cold weather, and long, tiring car trips. Join us this week as we set off in search of fun, in our very own kid’s teepee tents that are just right for camping.
Kids Teepee Tents and Other Indoor Camping Essentials
Some of the most important things you will need to make your indoor retreat just cosy enough include kids teepee tents, a nice soft blanket or two, and a few scatter cushions. Here’s how to create an indoor campsite using these vital ingredients and other touches…
No camping session is complete without the right teepee. These will help you create just the right retreat for a night of camping indoors. The Bunni range of kids teepees is lovely, with plenty of fun prints to get your little one’s imagination going. Made from high-quality cotton, these play tents are easy to set up, fully washable, and perfectly sized to allow kids to read, nap, play, and sit without feeling cramped. For the base, use a comfy kids rug, a duvet, a fold-out mattress or even couch cushions. Set the teepee up in the middle of the lounge, or your child’s bedroom, depending on your chosen campsite.
Next, we will need to make sure that the teepee is as snug as a bug in a rug. To do this, you will need a few blankets. Look for soft, warm kids blankets that will help to create a cosy atmosphere inside the teepee. These can be layered on the base to add softness, or used alongside duvet sets to add extra warmth. Bunni fleece blankets add plenty of warmth, while the double-sided Bunni baby blankets are also nice and soft. For a lighter cover, the Lorena Canals bubble baby blanket adds warmth without overheating.
Next up, it’s time to add the finishing touches to your indoor camp area. Scatter cushions are a fun way to add comfort. With so many adorable styles to choose from here in our online store, we’ve gone with a theme that brings to mind starry skies, campfires, and wide open spaces. To add even more to your tent, you could also think about a torch (all the better for spooky stories after the sun goes down), late night snacks, glow in the dark stickers or toys, warm socks, fun games, and, of course, plenty of imagination!
