Even though the "B" word wasn't allowed to say around here: I still hear it out of my chicke's mouths quite a bit. "I am sooo BOOOORED!"
We have one of those play sets with two swings in the center and a slide at the other end.
We did manage to alleviate some of that summer "nuthin' to do" this weekend with a tent made from vintage sheets I had hanging around :)
It was as simple as two straight stitches on my machine where the ends meet. It took 3 full size sheets end to end.
We tossed it over the top and weighted the bottom with rocks. It wasn't too windy, so the rocks held well.
We brought over an outdoor carpet from the deck and their little play table and bench inside and they had a little tea party out of the sun in their "girl's hang out".
They had a blast and I could hear them having conversations across the yard. My oldest asked if we could sleep out there tonight. Uhhh, is it a Hilton?then......no.
I think I would like to get them some bead bag chairs for some summer reading.
I might have to put a lounge chair in there for myself :)
