I have seen the sunflower houses that are framed and cost an arm and a leg. I tried building one this year and that did not work out well (but the tomatoes love it!). Next year I am so doing this!
 

If you have a plot of ground, there are wonderful things you can do with children, like growing a sunflower house.  To do this, choose a flat, sunny spot.  Trace a large rectangle, about 6x9 feet, leaving about a 2 foot opening for a doorway.  Gouge out a trench along the traced rectangle and plant sunflower and heavenly blue morning glory seeds.  Cover the seeds and water daily.  When the sunflowers reach approximately 5 feet in height, lace string back and forth from one sunflower head to another across the rectangle to form a roof.  Soon the morning glories will fill in the roof with green leaves and blue flowers.  What a place to play and dream! 

This idea, and many more may be found in Sunflower Houses, by Sharon Lovejoy.

That would be an awesome little hideaway!  That's really neat.
