We were recently sent a fab Den Kit to review, which comes with all the essentials to make your own outdoor den - Webbing haversack containing groundsheet, camouflage tarpaulin, wooden mallet, rope, tent pegs, tin mug, camouflage paint and instructions.
The weather wasn't great so after a quick cuddle with the kit Jack allowed me to prise it from his grasp and make a den in the kitchen, perfect for relaxing in on a rainy day.
Today, however, the skies were blue so we took the den kit along to nearby Cannock Chase, where we set up camp.
Once we'd located our spot and tied the rope (which is more than long enough), the boys threw the tarpaulin over the rope and pegged it down in no time. There was just about enough room inside for our family of 5 to sit and drink hot chocolate and eat biscuits, and it was really cosy.
We'll definitely be taking this out again as there are not many things that all 3 children enjoy doing together due to the age differences, but this was really enjoyed by everyone. Let's just hope for some more lovely days like today though.
The Den Kit is available online from The Handpicked Collection for £29.95 - perfect Christmas present for any little adventurer.
