Who’s ready for bedtime? I see 3 little bears that need to hear a few good Eric Carle stories :)

We are so excited to share storytime with you and our boys. A HUGE thanks to Gymboree for providing the adorable Eric Carle PJs that inspired this post!

If you’re familiar with our kids crafts, you’ll definitely notice a theme of colorful craft ideas. PLUS, Courtney loves all of Eric Carle’s stories and artwork (her favorite is Brown Bear, Brown Bear).

It’s Storytime With Eric Carle

For our bedtime story, Courtney and I thought it would be PERFECT to make a teepee in the playroom for the boys…we were right, they loved it!

Side Note: We were actually inspired by the video from Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran, “Everything Has Changed.” We both saw the scene with the teepee and Christmas lights and new we HAD to make our own!

So here’s the impromptu teepee!
