<h1>Making A Den Is Magical For Both Youngsters And Grown Ups</h1>

<p>A Sunday afternoon, and a type of days when afternoon boredom units in. My daughter Kitty and her family had been staying with us whereas their new kitchen was put in, and we have been additionally looking after my three-year-outdated grandson Barnaby whereas his parents had been working. So he had to be entertained with Kitty's daughter Chloe, who'll also be three in September.</p>

<p>In a second of inspiration Kitty cried out: 'I do know, let's make a den — like when I was a child! Very quickly she had pulled four chairs out and set them with the backs going through each other, about a metre apart. I provided two throws, plus a crimson-checked tablecloth — enough to drape over the chairs to create roof, walls and a door. In went a small pile of cushions — and the youngsters adopted, squealing with delight. A den. Somewhere to cover, whisper, giggle and make-imagine. A castle or a fort or a playhouse or a witch's cottage in the woods and even an underground cave — all from four chairs and some fabric.</p>

<p>It value nothing, and there wasn't an costly plastic toy, piece of merchandising or item of technological wizardry in sight. What's extra, as a mom and grandmother I confess that a large a part of my enjoyable got here from witnessing Kitty's own. A improbable mum and aunt, she was enacting her own childhood happiness — and that gave me real pleasure.</p>

<p>I used to be so pleased I put this little story on Facebook — and was amazed by the enthusiastic response from all ages. No fancy Wendy houses, gazebos, or correct wood cabin, as many kids have nowadays. Only a small formica picnic table and simplest of picnic chairs, or we sat on the grass or on the steps.</p>

<p>Bushes had been our hiding locations, weeds had been what we 'cooked' in toy pans, and our teddies and dolls 'ate' that. Any person else wrote: 'Seeing this brought back such comfortable recollections — my grandma used to construct dens for/with me — she was about 70 and I used to be between four and six. Once the tablecloths and sheets had been organized and pegged into place, she would make tiny sandwiches and a pot of orange squash 'tea' and get in there with me.</p>

<p>I nonetheless miss her in spite of everything these years — but returned the praise and did the identical for my sons and now plan to do the identical for my granddaughter. There were reminiscences of dens made with piles of cushions, or 'an enormous empty cardboard field which had as soon as housed a chest freezer, taken residence, the flaps formed into a peaked roof, a door and home windows lower out'. In 1992 that lady's sons 'had a ball for weeks with this development as their gang-hut'. Many more posts in the identical vein revealed a robust sense of tradition: the straightforward ideas for play which might be handed on between the generations.</p>

<p>No wonder I felt such deep-seated delight at Kitty's personal reminiscences, triggered by her spontaneous thought. She recalled dens within the garden and old style celebration games organised by her dad and letters written to her by her doll (yes, I was good at tiny printing) and other sweet recollections. She additionally liked a mad sport aptly known as Frustration and interminable video games of Snakes and Ladders and Ludo — the very ones I used to play with my brother as a child.</p>
