The digital age is a blessing and a curse. It allows us all, kids included, to expand our universe beyond anything our parents could have imagined. On the other hand, all too often, kids spend countless hours glued to a screen instead of ‘doing’.
Here is a fun and educational way to divert them from the small, confined universe of their smartphones to the wide-open, great outdoors… help them to build a living playhouse!
Also known as a bean teepee and similar to a willow playhouse, this is an easy DIY project.
Even with the summer heat, children would enjoy playing inside this natural playhouse — providing them with fresh air and a cool shade. It is also a good way to let them appreciate nature!
You’ll need these materials:
- 10 long Bamboo Canes (minimum of 6 ft)
- a packet of Runner Bean Seeds
- Gardening String/Cable Tie
- Chicken Wire
And these tools:
- Garden Trowel
