Den Building

July School Holidays

Den building is an important part of children’s imaginative and creative play.
Dens, cubbies & forts provide a private and personal play space, allow problem solving and co-operation- plus they’re great fun!

We’re looking forward to hosting a Den Building day on Thursday 6th July, 10:30am



At our weekly Little Foxes Play groups and also at our Family Nature Club we have a focus on Loose Parts Play.

Loose parts play is where a collection of objects are collected, laid out or found for children to play with.  They allow for open ended, non competitive play.

Our Den building day fits right in to this focus.

We will provide a collection of loose parts – branches, blankets, palings and other bits and pieces for making cubbies, hiding holes and play spaces.

We’ll also offer sign making & bunting making equipment and some natural materials for children (& grownups!) to make their own face paint from (little wildlings!)

The den making day is a multi-age event – we will have a small cubby town and some other play mats for younger children as well bigger building material for older children.

This will be a great family day out and we encourage you to bring along snacks and lunch, drinks and a picnic mat.

It will be an all weather outdoor event, so please bring warm clothes and raincoats – gumboots could be a good option too.

We’ll meet at Victoria Park, 19 Park Street Inverleigh from 10:30am
