Tipi Tent

Would you like to learn how to make a very easy house for your rabbit or a fairy out of sticks?

You will need:

  • 3 or more straight sticks  of the same length
  • A pipe cleaner or two
  • Extra things to decorate your house

First let’s practice wrapping.

Hold out your two fingers and wrap the pipe cleaner around them several times.

When that is easy you’re ready to begin.

Your tripod will only be secure when the sticks are driven into soft ground (dirt or playdough)

Experiment lots until you get it secure and stable so it  doesn’t knock over when you put your toys inside of it.

Add more sticks to the sides. Decorate!

To the grownups

This is a skill that is repeatable on a larger scale to build a full size fort (with long enough sticks) or den. We will continue to build upon these skills to build several different forts.
