Summer may be coming to a close but as the day turns into night earlier and earlier, the opportunity to enjoy the wonders of the night sky is here!
Whether your child loves catching fireflies or simply stargazing on clear night, our Glow N’ The Dark Firefly House Tent is perfect for inspiring imaginative play both indoors and outdoors.
Featuring our G-3 color-coded “Super Poles” and safe radius-cut hook and loop fasteners, our 100% polyester mesh Glow N’ The Dark Firefly House Tent offers the perfect opportunity for your child to experience the mystique of fireflies at night in a comfortable and familiar environment.
As the day fades away, the fireflies will play.
The moon and fireflies are all glow-in-the-dark, making this 48″ x 38″ x 48″ tent a must for any mini stargazer!
- 8.5″ x 11″ sheets of paper (at least two)
- Empty toilet paper rolls
- Parachute cording
- Hot glue gun
- Hole punch
Take an 8.5 x 11″ sheet of paper and fold in half horizontally (hamburger style). Cut along the fold. Next, roll each sheet around a toilet paper roll and secure it by tucking the ends of the paper inside the roll.
Using a hot glue gun, adhere the two rolls together. From there, cut a 3 x 8.5″ strip of the same colored paper and wrap it around both of the rolls and secure with hot glue.
Using a hole punch, make one hole on both of the outer sides of the “binoculars.”
Cut a long strand of parachute cord, thread each end through a hole, and tie off with double knots.
The binoculars are now ready for viewing.
Here’s looking at you, kids!
