Our girls are very into making forts and playing in tents. They love their playhouse at Papa and Mimi's house and seem to enjoy making spaces their own.
They have been asking for us to build them a Girl's Club fairly regularly. We pile up pillows and drape sheets and then they play. But, inevitably, it falls down and we need to rebuild several times. This frustrates Claire and she asked for a tent or play hut. I looked in the store and online, but they were around $50. I didn't really want to spend that much.
So, I took the hula hoop that Aunt Marcia made and draped it with fabric. Then I made some decorative flags and a Girl's Club sign and we are in business!
I did all of this while the girls were in bed last night. This morning they got up and went downstairs and saw the new club. I heard a lot of excited screaming and Lilly yelled "Mom, you are AWESOME!" It is all worth it. Especially since they have played in it for several hours already.
