Study tent around computer

Overview

Sometimes just everyday distractions can make learning difficult. To help your child find a quiet place in any environment, step-by-step picture instructions describe how to build a study tent. The back flap can be closed for more privacy, or opened to allow a parent or teacher to monitor work. It has been tested with children and found to help with computer focus, as well as simple homework chores if placed around a lamp and writing table.

The tent requires no sewing or expensive tools to assemble, is light weight, and is made from standard parts found in hardware and discount stores. Try using colorful cover sheets to customize for your child.
