WFMW: Killing time

Summer time. Kids out of school. Yet still, there are grown up things to be done – like laundry, mopping floors, paying bills, …. blogging.

We have one of those little pop-up tent things for the kids – they’re made by Play Hut I think. We have a small one, a tunnel, and a big Dora the Explorer playhouse. Normally they’re folded up and hidden in a closet. But during the summer I bring them out once or twice a week, set them up for the kids, and they can play in there for hours (no joke!). That gives me precious time to get things done. When we’re done, I fold them up and put them away. The best part is that we can take them with us when we go on a road trip – they’re easy to pack and small, and they’re most entertaining at Grama and Papa’s house.

  1. I love the little play tents! We use ours a lot, too! They’re great for camping trips. That way the kids can play in the play tent, and it keeps the dirt out of the sleeping tent.

  3. Gack– sorry, that Snowffairy novel was me. I always seem to forget to log-out when commenting on another wordpress blog.

    I had a laugh though– your comment came through while I was commenting on your bog :o)
