Den Building

Number 4 of our 50 things to do and one of the most popular.

Put your family's bushcraft skills to the test by building your own den in the woods or adding to someone elses.

They can be surprisingly cosy inside; for example you can add moss to the ground for carpet. The limit is only the materials you can find and your own imagination.

Just in case you get stuck help is nearby from one of our woodland rangers.
