Our Den Making Kit was designed by Forest School Experts. A great gift idea for the child who loves the outdoors and exploring. Everything you need to make a great outdoor den is included in the kit. We have had ours for years and it’s all still in tact even the camouflage paint, though it’s somewhat battered.
The Den Making Kit comprises of:
- Strong green canvas haversack bag which is machine washable
- Green camouflage tarpaulin measuring approximately 2.4 x 1.8m
- Durable groundsheet that’s both waterproof and rot resistant. It has eyelets too, so can double up as another tarpaulin. Approx size 1.8 x 1.2 m.
- A beautiful, unique and functional handmade wooden mallet fashioned from Shropshire coppiced ash.
- A tin mug, perfect for camp fires
- Tube of QMS face paint. Brown at one end, green at the other. Great for camouflaging yourself in the woods!
- 15 metres of rope
- 8 holdfast tent pegs and bag
Not suitable for under 3s.
Our Den Building Kit come from Shropshire based Flibberty by educational specialists Jo and Kay. Kay is also a fully qualified Forest School Leader. Both were involved in introducing Forest School to Shropshire over 18 years ago. Their work with children in the outdoors continues to be the inspiration for flibberty. It’s a lovely small company with a great ethos. All the mallets are handmade from Shropshire ash. Take a look at the full story here, it’s great.
