Hangout: How to build a perfect children’s den

child in denOne of the best childhood activities is building dens. Children enlist their creativity and sense of fun to construct a castle, a cave, or other private space that’s theirs alone. They can read, create a play, chill out – whatever they like.

Building dens is a perfect family activity. But how as parents do we encourage these creative construction skills and wholesome fun?

Watch the #MyDens Hangout

We’re thrilled to announce our #MyDens Hangout on Tuesday 30 September at 11:00. It’s just in time for Philips’ #MyDens competition — they are asking parents to share their children’s den creations to win a prize. We will be joined by top mum bloggers, who will be sharing their insight, experiences and tips, alongside lighting designer Tim Meaker, who will be providing den building tips and also showing you how you can make your children’s bedroom more inspiring using light and simple techniques.

You can watch LIVE on our BritMums G+ page ( and message us your questions and comments.

The G+ hangout is sponsored by Philips Lighting and highlights their Philips and Disney Imaginative Lighting range, that children can use in their rooms…or dens. The Disney-themed lights were designed to inspire your little heroes’ creativity, projecting a world of light around them, lighting up their dens and play spaces.
