Glamping. A child’s perspective …

We have fun glamping

We have the glamping tents up lots
It’s real cool

Raining or sunny

They are so much fun

A place to chill

Or pretend,

‘specially us boy cousins

That’s the very “bestest fun”

All you need are sheets and cushions

LOTS

Grandma always has heaps for us to play with
They are her old sheets for fun stuff

Maybe even Grandma’s patchwork quilt if we can get it before she looks

We use Grandma’s laundry Airer and lots of pegs
You have to fix the sheets to stay there
Grandma pegs the sheets to lots of things
Like the door handles and hooks on the wall and clips it in the windows

It’s funny when Grandma has to crawl in the tent ’cause she is big

We go Glamping on grandma’s back verandah.

No pause button here. Beautiful endless youthful energy. Precious.


We have our own door too, which makes it more fun.

Because “us” boys have discovered that with a click we have our own “house” When the adults were talking we giggled and locked our door
“Hmmm…unlock the door please” they said

But that’s no fun!

We can make a HUGE tent outside too in a tree that has pink flowers in the hot sun. It has a funny name. Grandma knows what sort it is.

Really fun this sort of Glamping

We just have to get to Grandpa and Grandma’s house….

  1. Love it! Looks like so much fun.

  2. We went Glamping in England but the huts were slightly more substantial!

    Thanks Lis. This sort of children’s play is easy to tidy up….setting up is more complicated as they always want it bigger. Tis fun though as they imagine so many things once they play :)

  4. This is why my sheets and covers of any sort used to be such a mess. But there was loads of fun had in the making. We used to use the loungeroom furniture. For a little something different for the olympics in sydney, we set up the real tent in the backyard. The only things we used in the house were the toilet, and the fridge in the kitchen. We bbq’d and ate out on the outdoor furniture for a dinner out, and at the foldup table and chairs in front of the tent for picnics. We had so much fun – and the traffic was no problem at all :D

    • Sometimes I have a sneaky method where I hide the play sheets if I’m quick enough. That way the size of tents are diminished. At times they will be in plain sight with the boys unknowingly playing all around ;)

      Love it. Fantastic idea….like having a holiday at home :)
      Things like this are great memory makers and cost nothing but thought and ingenuity :)
