While in the throes of infant parenthood, there is one tried and true rule: when all else fails, go outside. It doesn’t matter if baby has skipped her nap all day long and now you are paying the price for it (always a good time) or if you both just need a change of scenery, there’s nothing quite like the great outdoors to boost everyone’s mood and provide a much-needed reprieve from routine. Little ones are naturally curious about nature and our nursery tents provide the perfect landing spot for babies to enjoy the outside world in a safe and cozy environment.
First up is our Lil’ Nursery Tent! It features two mesh side panels that allow for ample ventilation AND easy viewing for parents and babies to keep their eyes on each other.
The eye-catching color palette makes it a fun addition to any outdoor adventure and the ease of set-up ensures that your time is spent enjoying the fresh air and not fumbling over complicated directions.
Best of all, this tent (like all of our nursery tents!) is made with a waterproof floor, thus making it the ideal spot to change a diaper or let baby play with sand and dirt without worrying about stains!
Next up is our Baby Suite Deluxe Lil’ Nursery Tent!
Perhaps the greatest feature about this particular tent (aside from the adorable rainbow graphic!) is the 1/2″ removable pad that makes for comfortable naps and easy clean-ups.
Much like the Lil’ Nursery Tent, this particular tent has plenty of ventilation so that babies can soak in the fresh air and parents can rest assured knowing that their little one is safe and sound.
One of our favorite ways to keep babies entertained in the nursery tents is to supply them with soft, colorful toys. Today we have created a handmade “heartfelt” toy that is sure to delight little ones!
- Two sheets of felt (red + pink)
- Embroidery floss
- Embroidery needle
- Heart Template (download here!)
Cut out the hearts from the printable template and use them as stencils for creating 2 pink felt hearts and 2 red felt hearts.
Layer the smaller heart atop the larger heart and use the running stitch to adhere the two shapes together for both sets of hearts.
Once both sets of hearts are finished, use the blanket stitch to adhere the two sides together.
Before the two sides are entirely sewn together, stuff batting evenly into all the crevices of the heart.
Finally, sew up the last of the heart and share it with your little one!
Thank goodness for play time in the great outdoors!
