Portable Shade Canopies: Endlessly Handy

I challenge anyone to find a portable structure that is handier than a shade canopy.  There is no apparent limit to the variety of ways that portable shade canopies can be put to use.  Here are just a few:

  • Set up a shade canopy along the sideline of your kid’s soccer games;
  • Use it to enjoy a comfortable, impromptu picnic in the backyard;
  • Keep it near the sandbox to provide the kids with extra shade as they play;
  • Bring a portable shade canopy along to the beach and create your own personal cabana shelter;
  • Set up merchandise tables under a shade canopy at your next garage sale;
  • Instantly create a covered dining area on the deck or patio.

Portable shade canopies are economical and durable; they are simple to put up and fast to take down.  Many come with their own tote bag, which makes for easy storage.  I keep a portable shade canopy in the trunk of my car, and it never ceases to amaze me how often I find a use for it when our family is out and about.  How do you use your portable shade canopy?
