For a lot of people, it’s a classic reminder of childhood, for others, a completely new experience. With summer right around the corner, there’s no better time than now to make your own bean tent!
This is an excellent DIY project you can do in the comfort of your own home if you have a garden with some minimal materials and requirements.
In only a couple of steps and a bit of help from your family members, you can make a stunning bean pole garden for your children to enjoy playing in.
Come on; let’s check out what you need to do in order to make this fantasy bean pole tent a reality.
How to Make Your Own Bean Pole Garden Tent
To make it, you’ll need several poles, twine or string, as well as soil, pole bean seeds and/or annual climbing flower seeds. You needn’t have a green thumb to have fun with this project and watch it grow-literally!
This can be the perfect solution for you if you’re a parent and if you’re looking for something fun and engaging to do together with your children.
They’ll be there to help you and you’ll use this moment to teach them valuable lessons like growing plants and making things from scratch. In the end, you’ll both enjoy in the magical green dome that will flourish.
Summer is the ideal moment to have fun outdoors and enjoy the beautiful weather and of course, get the kids out of the house to play in nature.
Your children will definitely love this awesome backyard project if they happen to be fan of Roots, Shoots, Buckets & Boots, a book by Sharon Lovejoy.
This is where the idea for the magical bean pole tent actually originates from. You can always make your own modifications and focus on how you want it to look.
What You Need to Know before You Start the Project?
First, find the right spot for your pole bean tent and try to loosely assemble it in order to see if it will look good.
Then, prep the soil by removing the sod and dig a compost to loosen up any heavy soil. Once the soil is ready, you can now permanently assemble it.
The growing of the seedlings may be slow, but once they start growing, they’ll grow fast and you’ll have a beautiful tent covered up in greens.
Your children will enjoy their own secret garden, but you as well!
