These Den Kits were designed to encourage children outside - whether a tiny backyard, on top of a hill, in a meadow, field, forest, beach or balcony.
The opportunity to create a temporary outdoor retreat is wonderful to all ages. No screens, no batteries, no complicated instructions - this is inclusive, simple, unadulterated fun.
Dens are also a wonderful teaching tool. Children are free to explore their own creative talents for problem solving, critical thinking and ingenuity. Regular outdoors play will create a respect for the natural environment, force them to adapt and deal with change, offer multi-sensory experience and help them to gain a sense of mastery.
