Children love building dens, and we want to encourage their creativity in making their own spaces. At our #MyDen Hangout, several mums shared their children’s dens and we got advice on good den-building materials as well as how to sympathetically and safely light children’s spaces.
Watch the hangout to find out:
- Ways to get more creative with dens (at 5:10)

The hangout was sponsored by Philips Lighting. Children can use in their dens or rooms the Philips and Disney Imaginative Lighting range with cute character lights. The Disney-themed lights are designed to inspire your little heroes’ creativity, projecting a world of light around them, lighting up their dens and play spaces.
