My girls have a classic teepee in a pretty floral print that we've used for years. It's been their "Girls Only" clubhouse, a cozy reading nook, a place to hide away for a moment of solitude, a playhouse, a spot to draw and create, and countless other pretend ideas I'll probably never know about. Needless to say, it's gotten a lot of use, and especially when we're at home, adds an element of fun to our day-to-day life.

Whether you're looking for a traditional teepee or tent, or searching for an out-of-the-box playhouse, we've found our favorite buys for entertaining kiddos and letting their imaginations expand.


Made for a crowd, this circular tent makes the most of all its inches and gives kiddos more room to stretch out. Trimmed in bunting and topped with a flag, the tent is reminiscent of a grand circus and also available in polka dot, geometric triangles and golden star fabrics.
