There's no denying that tents of any kind are cool, especially when you're a kid. That said, you don't always want your children dragging the contents of your linen closet outside or your camping gear from the garage. Instead, make them their own play tents from a simple supply list and inexpensive sheets!

Stephanie Lynn is always up to something awesome and this time it's play tents. She's created a great little tutorial to show you how these are made and even if you don't plan on letting your kids sleep in the backyard under them (though there's no reason why not), they're still a great prop to have around for summer play.

Make one, make 100, use them inside or out (hello reading nook), just make sure to send us photos as we're dying to see your handiwork! Get the full tutorial over at Under The Table and Dreaming.
