The Treehouse Bed Tent

We’ve had a “bed dilemma” in Evan’s room for several months now.  Once he outgrew his Toddler Bed I started looking around for beds but just didn’t find anything I was really too excited about.  And really didn’t want to spend the money on a bed at that particular moment.  We had an extra Twin Mattress from when we had an extra guest bedroom so I ended up just putting the mattress on the floor and that’s basically how he’s slept for several months now.   It doesn’t look all that cool but one plus is that I don’t have to worry about him falling off at night!!

He’s been super interested in building forts recently. Every spare sheet in the house can usually be found in his room draping from one wall to the next.  Well my mom took note & just brought over the coolest thing!! It’s a BED TENT!!  So, not only does it bring some character to his poor little mattress laying on the floor but gone are the sheets without taking away the fun!!

Evan is totally digging this!! I know he’ll be excited to sleep in it tonight!  And for whatever reason he usually sleeps better & longer on nights we have a fort up!!  I guess it makes his room darker & cozier!  He’s already been up there for over an hour and counting!!!  Perfect indoor fun for a cold & wet January day!!

    Hmmm. I am thinking about setting up our kids little pop-up tent for naps. My son would really love this.

    He looks SO CUTE coming out of the tent! It looks as if he already has some “things” in it. Hope he still sleeps as good!!! Gami & Papa

    What a great idea! That just may be one of his favorite memories when he gets older :-)

    Such a fun idea! And eliminates the need for a “real bed” for a while. :)
