The Teepee Is the New Fort

Remember, when you were younger, piling up pillows and couch cushions to make forts? Well, kids are still doing this, but they've also got another, no-work-required option: teepees. In striped, preppy or even tribal patterns, the decorative tents are great for indoors or out, for hiding, playing or just chilling.

They give babies a shady space to play in the yard or at the beach, and older kids a private spot for imaginary play or quiet reading time. And for us? An activity that won't leave a big mess in the living room. Here are our top teepee picks:

 Teepee for Me Indoor/Outdoor Teepees ($288 to $336)



 Nickmaxmama Teepee ($80)



 Restoration Hardware Baby & Child Monogrammed Play Tent ($149)



  Bazoongi Kids Teepee ($60)



 The Hunnibees Knees Indoor/Outdoor Play Teepee ($139)
