Indian Summer: 5 of the best tipis for children

I love tipis (or teepees or wigwams), so much so that we slept in one on our wedding night. I particularly love this tipi pictured above, although admittedly I am neither creative, green-fingered or energetic enough to try and reconstruct one at home. But, it’s a great idea, no? If you had the space, the time and the know-how, then wouldn’t it be amazing to build one in your garden? Failing that, you could always go the easy route and buy one of these below. Some are for outside, some are for inside, but all are designed for children (although Hearthworks also make amazing ones for adults), and who other than me, loves a tipi more than a small child?

If you’re so tipi crazy that you even want to sleep in one when you go on holiday, then check out the brilliant Canopy & Stars website where you’ll find the best selection of yurts, tipis and treehouses to stay in, in the UK and Europe.

Or if you’re organising a wedding or a mega party, then PapaKata tents are possibly the most amazing tipi-type things I’ve ever seen.
