Tepee-It-Yourself: Darling French Tepee Kit For Kids

Oh, I do love a kit. I've made a postcard kit, a new home tool kit, and a San Francisco Welcome/Survival kit, and coveted tiny town & log pillow kits, but my new favorite is a sweet and simple tepee kit from France...

Available from Kickcan & Conkers, the Morse Tepee Kit includes 6 screenprinted tepees and 18 little wooden sticks. I am torn over which I would love more: six tiny tepees lined up on my mantle (if I had a mantle), or six lovely designs framed on my wall. Hmmm...

The best part about this project for kids, I think, is that once they've gotten their feet wet putting together the pre-printed tepees, they'll be dying to design their own. Before assembling all six, they could trace one to use as a template, and then they'll be ready to make a million more. I can hardly imagine the cuteness! It's also a great chance to talk about all the different types of structures people live in (or lived in) around the world.
