‘Building a den is great for encouraging children’s imagination and reinforces their sense of self’ (The Guardian)
As children we all loved making dens. They are places to retreat, invent imaginary worlds, tell stories and much more.
Dens can be made out of anything. In my workshops I encourage the use of recycled and natural materials.
Groups are split into teams small enough to allow everyone to take responsibility for something,
and together the team builds, solves problems and has fun.
Dens aren’t just for children! I also run team building and INSET workshops using ‘dens’ as a theme. (see team building)
