Little S collected a LOT of sticks last time we went for a walk. I didn’t really want them all in the house so we tried to get creative outside.
This is what we came up with.
What do you think of our mini den? Perfect for Playmobil pirates planning their next move. It was also great balancing practice getting it to all stay in place.
Keeping in theme with our garden creations, we set about making some fairy doors. I was astonished at how exciting the children found this activity. the idea that a fairy or elf would come through the door led to many amusing conversations. Z is keeping his in his room for the tooth fairy.
What do you think?
What a fantastic idea and we have lots of sticks in our garden too. We are not quiet so into fairies mind, but it looks very good also.
Thanks lovely 🙂
Ooo neat idea! When we were chopping trees down in the back garden we had a pile of branches for a couple of weeks and Ozzy used to love playing with his dinosaurus on it pretending it was ‘Dino-World’! Love this mini-den thing – Kitty would love to make a fairy house so I’ll have to take her to the woods (when it stops raining!) x
ooooh yes sounds great. Fingers crossed the rains stops soon. x

Ooh I think Isla would love to make a fairy door – thanks for the idea! 🙂
Glad you liked it. x
Love them! I spent yesterday in the woods with my little chums playing full sized dens – we are going to have to go back and do this next week!

This is a fabulous idea!
I was only talking the other day about how children don’t seem to make dens like when “I were a lass”.
I love the idea of the fairy door … my girls will love this.
Thanks Donna. x
Fab ideas 😀 xx
