how to spend an icy day off
...in a blanket tent, of course! I used to make these with my brother all the time when we were kids...we had an Indian print bedspread and some other things that used to get made into a tent with the back of the couch or a clothesline or whatever. So when the kiddos and I were trying to figure out how to spend an unexpected day off from school (for the big girl) and an icy morning where we weren't going to go anywhere...out came the dropcloths and old sheets, and a card table and some chairs, for tent-making. Great for play, great for a picnic lunch, great for a quiet day in.
