There was once a little Brownie girl, who was making the big move up to Girl Guides and with that came the adventures of camping. This little Brownie had never been camping before, but was eagerly awaiting this experience....
Bell tents and mess areas were erected, pegs hammered into the ground, a camp fire was lit and marshmellows toasted. We learnt how to Be Prepared!!
We sang Kum-bah-yah and when it was time to turn in, this little Brownie was so exhausted she slipped into her sleeping bag and drifted into the land of nod. But this little Brownie was sleeping on a slight slope, and so, at 3am in the morning had slipped head first under the tent....
Luckily her camp leaders noticed and dragged her back under... But the story has been retold many a times!!
Not quite a bell tent, but a tee-pee from the Crafty Minx book. Made in my kids favourite colours of blue and yellow) My kids LOVE it and there will be no sleeping on slopes in this beauty!
well maybe not!
