Make an indoor teepee

Stuck inside on a rainy winter day? It's time to make an indoor teepee! So much more fun than a fancy store-bought ones, the homemade version is easy to create. Watch the video below to find out how to make a cute indoor teepee.

What you need:

  • 4 pieces of timber dowel (about $5 each from Bunnings in the timber section)
  • about 50cm of rope
  • a large blanket, quilt or sheet
  • 6 pegs
  • lots of pillows to make it cosy inside

Number of players:


Watch the video to find out how to make an indoor teepee:

Use the length of rope to bind your four dowels together about 20cm from the top.

Once they're bound together at the top, splay them out to make the teepee shape.

Now drape your blanket over the frame and peg it in place.

Don't forget to fill it up with pillows, blankies and soft toys to make it inviting.

Most important: give them a torch. You won't see them for hours!
