Den Building

smileyDen Buildingsmiley

My challenge this week is to build a den.

You don't need any specialist 'den equipment', but remember to check with a grownup if you're unsure about what you can use.


To make a basic den you could use a table, chair, play equipment, tree, basket or cardboard box as your frame. Then cover it in blankets and sheets. 

You could challenge yourself to make a tipi style frame using broom handles and long sticks/canes.


If you don't want to make a den for yourself, you could make one for your toys or for a garden animal to shelter in.

Have fun!
