Headteacher’s Challenge #5

Good morning to you all 🙂

I hope you’ve been managing to (safely) enjoy time outside in the lovely Spring sunshine.  To make the most of the glorious weather, today’s challenge is …

Build a den outside in your garden, or in your house, with your family

You can use anything – sheets, duvets, binbags, sleeping bags,  brush handles, clothes pegs, string, cardboard, chairs, boxes, trampolines ….

Think of the great times that we had building dens on the grass in our school playground during our Outdoor Learning Days with our houses.  Remember how we changed and adapted our den designs as we came across problems (Ayrbank – our dens kept getting blown away as we were trying to build them on the windiest day possible!)

If you prefer, build your den inside your house somewhere – your bedroom, under the kitchen table or take over the whole living room (remember to ask for permission first …)  My boys used to build dens with their papa under the kitchen table when they were wee, and they used to eat their dinner there and sometimes even slept there too, all wrapped up in sleeping bags and pillows!

So, have fun, and I’d love to see some photos of you and your family in your dens on your blogs – I’ll be checking them regularly over the holidays.

As always, take care, stay safe and keep in touch.
