Grandma’s Camp: The Indian in the Cupboard

Last year I introduced you our Grandma’s Camp. This year Grandma chose Indian in the Cupboard as the book of the year. It worked out great, and the kids were at Grandma’s Camp while I was at EVO’12. They had so much fun and assure me they didn’t miss me even a little.

She made each kid a little Indian costume, and together, her and my dad made this teepee for the kids to sleep in!

And they don’t mess around–this thing is pretty much a full sized teepee. Just like Little Bear in the book, she had the kids paint the teepee. They also made beaded necklaces, headbands and bows and arrows.

I don’t know what else they did, as all my boys can talk about is this teepee! I think Grandma has set expectations pretty high for future camps!

    This is such a fun tradition! When I have kids, I’m totally making my mom do this! :) And the little books are so darling! Thanks for sharing!!

    I love this. Your mom and dad are awesome for making the teepee for the kids. I made one for Oliver for Christmas and it only fits in the living room. I could not imagine making one big enough for everyone to sleep in. I need to talk my mom into having grandma camp.
