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
‘specially us boy cousins
That’s the very “bestest fun”
All you need are sheets and cushions
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 can make a BIG tent with LoTS of sheets for us ALL
We can make LITTLE tents for one person
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.
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….
“Please can we go mum”

Love it! Looks like so much fun.
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
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
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
So fun! My kids always loved having “forts” built in the house or outside… using sheets and blankets.
