ln-House Den Building


It’s cold outside, the ground is full of snow; I can’t leave the house in account of my brand new electric wheelchair dying (yes I am very angry and bitter).  Therefore I decided to ressurect an old blog post that I orginaly put on Little Doers.com last year.

Today we decided to help our kids build a den. It’s still up now. Children love den building, it gives them a sense of pride and accomplishment. Sometimes we forget that you don’t need to be in the woods to build a den. You can just as easily build one in your living room!

 

Today we constructed a den out of 2 dining chairs, a kids drum machine, a blanket, a throw, a baby playmat was the floor, plasma ball lighting and a giant dose of imagination!

It’s important to lay firm foundations for your den, yes 2 dining chairs are those foundations, don’t forget the kids drum machine!
