Floor mat – for a little extra cushioning, Hip Kids’ teepees come with a floor mat so kids can sit comfortably while they play.
Decorating A Plain White Teepee
Decorating your kid’s space has never been more fun than now with all new possibilities and design ideas available online. One classic idea that never grows old is bringing part of the outdoors indoor with a teepee. A teepee is a perfect indoor design idea that gives your little one his or her own space to play, read, spend time with you or a favorite grown up, or just to sit or lie around and dream. It can be placed in his or her bedroom, a nook in the living or dining room or on the porch. It’s easily moveable from one part of the house to the outdoors on fine summer days/nights to watch the clouds and stars.
Consider a teepee a blank canvas that you can spruce up and personalize to fit your kid’s unique personality. You can base the whole theme of the room on the teepee. If you choose a white teepee, you can paint and accessorize it. Choose a theme such as the American frontier motif (for boys) complete with horses and cactus prints or mountain flowers (for girls) with bright yellow and violet flowers. You can order a white teepee with bonus floor mat and carry bag at HipKids.
Here are the things you need to decorate and paint the teepee. You can get the paint and stencils from your favorite craft store.
- Textile paints.
- Stencils of the shapes you want to paint over the textile.
- Paint brush.
- Clean rug or paper towels.
Before setting up the teepee, paint and color in the designs you want. You can paint the stencil designs on the lower part of the teepee, near the base or be wild and bold - meaning just about anywhere you like!
- Always start painting lightly on the stencil, don’t add too much paint at first.
- You want a smooth surface of paint.
- Dab off any excess paint. Excess paint can crack when bent or folded.
- Let the paint dry before setting up the teepee.
- You can add other accessories such as beads, trims, flags and pompoms, just make sure these are removable when you need to wash the teepee cloth.
- An old-fashioned gas lantern style lamp or LED fairy lights make the space cozy.
Designing a Bedroom with a Teepee
In putting a teepee in a bedroom whether the room is for sharing or not, make sure there’s enough room for it. Always place the teepee opposite the bed or away from the bed to enhance the idea of special sanctuary or space for the child. Stock it with some of their favorite picture books to encourage reading, or toys that stimulate the imagination.
You can set up the teepee as the central theme of the room and add other decor on the wall and even the bed to tie the theme together. Make sure the inside of the teepee is comfortable. HipKids’ teepee comes with its own washable floor mat, and you just add a rug or additional soft mat to make it comfortable to sit on or lie in. Add a few floor cushions to make it snug, comfy and inviting.
Fun under the Sun with the Teepee
A teepee will always be a welcome addition to the porch or backyard in summer months. This will make outdoor playtime more engaging to your kids and their playmates. Place the teepee on one side of the porch where children can safely play, or in the backyard under the shade trees. Experience stargazing with your child and make the teepee his or her base to lie down and watch the summer night sky with you.
Another fun activity around the teepee in your backyard is a picnic. Invite his or her friends over and let them have a picnic in or outside the teepee, with your child as the host. Organize the picnic to include fun games with prizes like a treasure hunt and since everything is washable, you need not worry about dirt and stains in or outside the teepee.
HipKids also has other designed teepees, just out now are the striped ones in grey, dark blue and pink colors. These teepees go well with other design elements for indoor and outdoor fun for your kids.
As a design element, a teepee offers a million possibilities and ideas for your child to enjoy and make memories with. It can be a nice place to be quiet and tuck into a good picture book or play frontier men and women as well as play house with dolls and a tea party. But that’s not all, you can join in the fun with your child with night time stories under the teepee. Childhood memories are precious, and your child will surely remember their very own teepee, the games and stories with it.
