Why?

Den building is an exciting way for children to work together and create secret areas to read books, relax and have fun in. Building a den creates great opportunities for children to problem solve, work collaboratively, engage in imaginary play and create a sense of adventure.

How?

You can create a den using any material you have at home like bed sheet, towels, table cloths etc. Use pegs to attach them to trees, fencing, washing lines, chairs, sofas to make a secret hiding place for children.

They can be used for shade during sunny days and cosy nooks during colder days/evenings.
