den building day...


I love this gorgeous picture by Deb Schwedhelm, what child hasn't done this? and why isn't there a national indoor den building day? Lets start one, February is full of wet dreary days, perfect for indoor play like this. So are you up for the challenge? Get your old blankets and sheets out and see what your family can create. Post your pictures on your blog if you have one and I will link to them, we are going to make a den tomorrow!

  2. Oh, my gosh, you are such a good mom. It drives me CRAZY when my kids tear apart the couch to make "forts." I promise to lighten up just once this month, and join in the fun of building a couch and blanket den. Thanks!

  3. Hi - I blog over at littledandelionclocks.wordpress.com about children's creativity and spirituality. Each Tuesday I post an idea to encourage adults to reconnect with their childlike self.
    So today I posted about dens and the boys and I built a den. See the blog for pics.
    Thanks for this reminder of how fun den building is.

  4. Oh I missed this and mine are now in bed, but we do a LOT of den building round these parts, mostly using chairs and quilts. Here's one of our outdoor efforts last summer (on my old wordpress blog):

  6. We den build a lot, the little ones like to keep it quite simple but the big ones like to have rooms and doorways etc. We went to the eden project about three years ago and spent a fantastic couple of hours making dens with the materials provided, canvas, planks, poles etc, great to see families all working together, but also funny to see how competative the parents became ! Happy memories :)
