Building a den… the ultimate ‘good clean fun’ activity! Not only is it free, but it requires very minimal materials, and kids absolutely love it. We asked some of the Farmer Palmer’s team if they used to enjoy building dens as a kid, and it was unanimous – den building got top marks all round.
Even thinking about those childhood dens brought smiles to the team’s faces. Sweet! Do you remember piling up cushions, hanging sheets over whatever structure you could find, and enjoying the cosy satisfaction found inside an indoor den? Or maybe you ran riot in the woods, gathering sticks and creating something wild?
Maybe this is something you regularly do with your kids already, in which case – big high five, and we’d love to know your den-building tips.
Have your kids built a den in the wilderness yet?
If they haven’t yet, how about encouraging them to the next time you’re in the great outdoors?
So get out there and encourage your kids to build dens outdoors. It’s in the good clean (well, maybe a little muddy) fun that magical memories are made!
And if it’s raining . . . get creative with den building indoors too! Bed sheets and pillows!
