Sometimes we forget that kids just need to be kids. Creativity and creative play are so important during childhood in order to learn important skills. Make time to initiate creativity in your lives of your children by building teepee forts together. They will be happier, their cognitive skills will develop faster, and they will be healthier and smarter overall.

The possibilities for learning and fun in a teepee fort are exciting. Your children can wear moccasins and feathered headbands while you teach them about history. Set up a craft table where they can do beading and make their own necklaces and bracelets. Use yarn, paper plates, beads, and feathers to make dream catchers. Talk to them about their own dreams and thoughts. You can also teach them about business by turning the teepee for kids into a craft shop where they can sell their creations.
