All you need to do is scavenge around for blankets, cushions and an old sheet (not the nice linen).  Rig up a rope between trees to throw a sheet over or simple drape it above the kids abandoned tree house.

Hang flags to mark their territory and string strains of lights for late night stake outs.  Enlist your little helpers to fill the interior with bedding, books and tasty snacks.  Don’t forget the walkie talkies to stay in touch with your adventure seekers!
