creating a play area for kids with Pillowfort



Today I am glad to be working again with Target and the newest additions to their sweet kids Pillowfort collection, showing my take on a play area for kids! With most kids now out of School for Summer more of us have our children at home more hours each day. It's a daily struggle to keep them occupied but it it's easy to create a fun, simple space just for them to read, pretend and play.

From the new collection I chose a teepee, they have a white and gold version I really wanted but it was a little too new and wasn't in stores just yet. The teepee is fun and my kids are immediately drawn to the sort of areas that involve crawling or hiding. It is also wide enough to pull over a twin bed so it doesn't need to take up a lot of space either.
Inside I used a plush striped rug, pillow and quilt rolled up as a comfortable area to read or play on a tablet.
I also really like these wooden crates that can be purposed a bunch of different ways but I used them as furniture, stacked up in an asymmetrical shape to stuff full with books, toys, comforter and even a touch lamp. I also found these paper mache animals in the craft section, which can be painted or decorated.
Pillowfort has also added kid-sized furniture like this metal chair, this way not everyone is vying for a space in the teepee at once. I also think a small table would be a great addition, giving a surface for drawing or building.
