I am so glad you are joining us for our first ever online Summer Day Camp project. My kids and I had a great time making these Hula Hoop Hideouts and they hung in the trees for days while the kids continued to play in them and eat snacks in them. (I was hoping I would get lucky and someone would actually fall asleep in one.) If your kids are like mine they will love having their own hideout.
- Hula Hoop (Mine are from Dollar Tree for $1 each)
- Safety Pins
- Twine or Rope
- Tulle and/or Ribbon (Mine is from Jo-Anns Dollar bin)
- Cushions and Blankets
- Pin the top edge of the sheet to the hula hoop by folding the sheet over and pinning it to itself. (see pic below)
- Use twine to create a hanger to tie your hideout to the tree with. I used two long pieces of twine and tied each piece to opposite sides of the hula hoop. The two pieces then criss-crossed over each other. I tied the two together where they criss-crossed with another piece of twine. Later I used that piece to actually tie the hoop into the tree.
- Tie on tulle and ribbons or any other embellishments you have. (see pic below)
- Hang the hideout from a tree branch.
- Add blankets and cushions underneath your fort so you can be nice and comfy.
- Take a little nap or eat a snack inside your new hideout.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Visit here next week to see our next Summer Day Camp project by Amanda from Ninth Street Notions.
