Family Den Day

Building a den is a great way to encourage children’s imagination. Using simple materials children can build structures that can be anything they want; a house, a cave, a tent, a castle or even a bat cave!

On our family den day, the weather was rainy but that didn’t stop us! We invited parents to bring along their own materials and help to build a den. Before starting, we spoke to the children about where would be a good space to build our den and what materials we should use. Everyone had lots of brilliant ideas about what they thought would make the “perfect “den.

Once they were built, the dens remained in place for the whole week at nursery and were used for teatime snack and circle time.
