Your kids won't want to leave these DIY play tents that are just for the kids, no adults allowed. A tent can become a magical world where your child is in charge of it all and can make-believe all day long.

Making your own DIY play tent or fort is a great way to save money. You can buy one at the store for over $100 and it won't be as good of quality as one you can make yourself. They're mostly easy projects, too. Some require sewing while others require more woodworking, but they are all fun projects that a beginner can easily tackle.
