Den Building – My Sunday Photo

Sun 4 Dec 16 | Just for Fun | 7 comments


M isn’t the most outdoorsy little boy, but he loved building dens in the woods recently. I think this photo captures his slight cautiousness of the whole thing (and Mummy taking yet another photo – he is not a huge fan!).

I think getting the small people out in the fresh air and doing mucky, manual fun stuff is so important – whatever the weather. Then you feel less guilty about the hour long stint of Blaze and the Monster Machines when you get home πŸ˜‰

Happy Sunday peeps!

    So vital to get kids outdoors and I love this picture and how he knows it is being taken. Nothing better than den-building and never gets tiresome as my tweens still love it

      Thanks Kate! It’s just brilliant isn’t it? Fresh air, creative fun, opportunity for silliness (I’m crap at it…). Appreciate the comment.

      Thanks Darren. He’s a tricky one to photograph so I was quite pleased with it! πŸ™‚
