    A fort using a hula hoop! Here's what she says about instructions: The Reading Canopy: handmade by sewing a 108" x 54" silk to a circular hand-quilting hoop (like an embroidery hoop, only huge!), adding lengths of hemp twine to the hoop, then attaching them to a sling ring. Another (square) piece of white silk was draped over this contraption, and we used fishing wire to hang it from a hook in the ceiling.

Cool...I once let Spencer set up a tent in his room...took up his whole room...he had sleep overs and kept it up for a long time :-) It was fun :-)

Very easy to make tent for your little friends! Great gift idea and I am sure that you can use recycled sheets or fabric from the second hand store!

love this, and the montessori floor bed....ah, of course, it's Meg McElwee's creation !!!!

Only one cut and easy-to-follow instructions make for a kid-sized reading nook that you can build today! This is a simple project that comes together in an hour or less. You need recycled material for the panels and approximately $20 worth of supplies, assuming you own a drill, staple gun and wrench. Questions: Please send me a message anna{AT}lawrencegirls{DOT}com

What a neat idea for a little reading/play nook. Kids love having special little spaces like this.
