I am sure most of us have made a fort by throwing a sheet over a table? Here's another frugal fun idea!

Make a quick fort for your little ones! Or a reading nook! Or a change room! Or a stage! Or a canopy over your little girl's bed! Or???

Make your fort/play tent/reading nook from a hula-hoop and shower curtain with shower curtain rings.

Just hook the rings onto the hula hoop - and hang up somewhere - inside the house, or outside in the yard!

To hang up, use three 2 ft. lengths of plastic chain link or rope fastened on the hula hoop, equal distance apart - joined in the center with an additional length long enough to fasten to roof or tree.

You can buy your supplies at the local dollar store or:
Shower curtain
Shower rings
Hula Hoop

Elaine Murszewski suggested: That's also a good idea for campers who use a camping shower bag! Just close the shower curtain and have Velcro™ down the opening!
