Tipi playhouse: Put up the tent

Lay the paper guide on the ground and push the poles’ metal ends into the ground at the marks on the paper.

Wrap the tipi shell around the poles and secure ties around the tops and bottoms of the poles.

Insert tent pegs into the ground at the triangles between poles. Tie laces to tent pegs. Tie openings around poles so kids can run in and out.
