Den building competition

How many of you made dens when you were younger?

Judging by the response we've had to our book Den Building: Creating Imaginative Spaces Using Almost Anything - most of you did!

Some of you have shared your photos of recent dens - I remember using a wooden clothes horse but obviously times have changed a little - but not much.

Since so many of you have shared happy memories of dens with blankets and clothes horses, secret dens, dens in the garden ... our publishers have offered a free copy of the book to the most original den photo that you send to us.

Go on – give it a go!

You can tweet a photo using the hashtag #denbuilding2016 and tag one of us in then we can upload it here.

We would love to see what you have been building.

Send us the photos by the 29th of February 2016 and we’ll Tweet the winning den!

Love Jane @janeh271 & Cathy @cathy_cross

 Look at how much fun children can have with a simple cardboard box.

REMEMBER dens can be for grown ups too! This one had a champagne corner! 
den building for grown ups is a link to a blog post all about how this den was made.


Enjoy your den building and don't forget to send us your photos.
