Mini den building

Build a den for your toys so they can join in the fun!

Get creative with sticks, leaves and other natural bits and bobs, and make a mini woodland hideaway.

  • Make sure you build your den in a sheltered spot, so it’s away from the wind
  • Will your den be tall or small? Which sticks are best for the walls?
  • Experiment with grass and fallen leaves – which makes the comfiest floor?

Little brothers and sisters will love helping you with this activity, so try making enough dens for everyone.
