canopy picnic :: kid projects

here's a fun weekend project!  if you have kids, you might even have all of the supplies lying around already.

"the monster" has been practicing reading quite a bit this summer and sometimes that's difficult to do with a little brother around.  i originally made him this little canopy for a quiet reading spot, but it has actually transformed into their new favorite place to eat lunch.


  • hula hoop
  • shower curtain
  • curtain hooks
  • ribbon or cord
  • pillows or round bench
the diy:
  1. tie 4 pieces of ribbon onto the hoop at 12:00, 3:00, 6:00, and 9:00 so that it will hang level
  2. gather all 4 ribbon ends and tie one big knot.  then hook knot onto tree branch
  3. now add the shower curtain using curtain hooks
  4. make cozy with a pillow or two

this little oasis literally took me 10 minutes.  it's a simple and easy nook that kiddos can enjoy all summer!  enjoy your weekend friends... xoxo
