Building dens – making memories

Building dens – making memories

Today my girls taught me a lesson, they don’t need fancy toys or extravagant days out all they want is my time an attention I already know this but often loose sight of this and am too busy trying to keep our diary jam packed.

This was the first day in what feels like forever that I’ve had nothing planned an no where to be so I asked the kids what do you want to play ‘camping’ we usually just make little sleeping bags up on the floor when we play this but today we went one step further and made a whole den in the dining room (under the table) 

We spent hours this afternoon reading stories and spending time together in our den it was lovely just spending some one on one or in my case one on three time with no distractions, no phone, no tv. 
They especially loved having the little butterfly fairy lights up! 
Lottie loved it too even though at every chance she was trying to pull everything down.

    I am a great believer is not having a completely full diary of activities and I bet this is something the kids will remember for a very long time!
