Give kids an indoor play tent so they will have a place to play no matter what time of day or what the weather is like outside. Let them have a space where they feel out of sight while they are still actually close by so you can keep an eye on them. Join them in the tent for imaginary camp outs, time for stories, escape from the everyday routine. Take them snacks, some art activities, a book, or any number of fun games and toys to bring along into the kids indoor play tent.
Imagination is sparked when you give children a space and an idea to get them started. There are few if any children who wouldn’t enjoy spending time in a play tent indoors or out. The best part about indoor play tents is they can become a common area for play time or even nap time. Giving children a space to play, rest, dream, sing, tell each other stories, or create their own imaginary adventures together.
Most of the tents featured could be set up outdoors as well. Just be sure to check the individual specifications if you wish to use it outside.

Tent & Tunnel Combo
There are many reasons a kids indoor play tent can add wonderful dimension to playtime or nap time… but don’t stop there! Add another element of fun with a tunnel to the tent. This is the kind of entrance which will add an extra boundary (more privacy) while also added an exercise element to play time. Especially important on rainy days when the children can not go outside to play. The tunnel gives each child a way to use some of the energy they would have used out on the playground.
Tunnels also add a great space for approaching and leaving the tent which will add more imagination opportunities. Elements of an internal story can evolve as your child explores the tunnel, the tent (or caves). Whatever they may imagine they will encounter there. They may be entering into a honey comb, or looking for a dragon, entering the mountain to find out where the waterfall begins.
The possibilities are vast and you can add some ideas along the way to spark your child’s natural ability to discover the power of his imagination.
Tunnels are so much fun you can even play in one without the tent.
