When I was a kid one of the fun past times we entertained ourselves with was the making of tents. Not just throw up one sheet or blanket kind of tents. Oh no! Ours were like the Harry Potter kind of tents.
They were much bigger inside than they appeared from the outside. We would grab every sheet, blanket, towel, etc. that we could find and with clothes pins, would put up walls making hallways and rooms.
Boy were our tents grand! When we were finished we'd show off our tents to my mom. We'd show her where the door was and she'd get down on her hands and knees and follow us crawling through the tent as we'd describe what each room was.
And then, the ultimate fun! Mom would let us picnic in our tents and then sleep in them! The tents would be up for a few days and then as all camping trips are, it was time to take them down. That was the worst part! Having to put everything away.
I still don't like that part of any project that I do! Some things we just never grow out of.....
