indoor den building



When the boys woke up this morning, they decided that today was a day for the building of dens. Luckily, there is no shortage of blankets, sheets and quilts lying around, so a bedroom den was constructed, quickly followed by another in the sitting room. The upstairs den was an explorers’ hideout, complete with binoculars, compass, etc. whilst the downstairs one was home to a menagerie of toy animals. The perfect way to spend our last day of half term.

I am sharing some pictures as part of Emma and Catherine‘s Indoor Den Building Week.

    Oh how we love a den indoors or outdoors, weather permitting. Not sure where it comes from but we call it a ‘campie’. We’ve used them as a challenge at birthday parties – teams compete to make the best campie in a limited time with the criteria that everyone must fit in and the doors must shut. Brilliant fun, I highly recommend it.

    Lovely pictures Laura, and the blankets are gorgeous! I love that you had 2 different dens for different purposes. Hope you are enjoying your weekend before school starts again tomorrow (although we have an inset day!)
