We all know when it comes to school holidays, kids get bored, but we’ve sorted you out with a Jack hack that will keep them tied-up for hours.  And the best part, you won’t need to break the bank and buy fancy equipment. Plus, not only will the kids have a blast, but you’ll be making memories too.

Our Jack Medium Tarp and Pea & Bean frames worked to bring together this fun arvo activity.

What are you waiting for? Let’s build a tent!

Additional materials needed for this project:

  • Mallet
  • PPE - Gloves
  • Steel tent pegs
  • Decorate with all your fave things

Set up structure

  1. With stakes together, use cloth tie to bind it, so it won't budge

    Spread the stakes out

    Push into ground so it doesn't move
  2. Drape tarp around

    Tie tarp at the top

    Make that knot nice and tight
  3. Tuck in the sides & anchor with tent pegs

    We used bulldog clips to clip back. They were the right size to clip and tuck.
  4. Decorate and have fun!!

    Now go on, make some memories.
