Creating and constructing dens
Dens can be as simple or complicated as you like!
You could simply use two chairs and a large blanket to create a magical space.
You could add lights or torches for evening adventures!
You could create a space outside in the sunshine for a social/solitary area to explore music, nature, have a picnic, to relax or meditate. What birds or insects can you see and hear whilst outside in your den?
Help to boost your child’s vocabulary during this activity by asking questions about the size and positioning of the materials used to build the den.
We would love to see some photos of the dens that you have made at home.
Encourage your children to be imaginative with their dens, go on a hunt around the house and garden for various materials that can be used to construct the perfect den!
