Fights And Fairy Lights

I used to LOVE making dens when I was little.

There was something so cosy and exciting about being enclosed in a small space with your toys.

We have had some really cold days this week and den building has been a good way to keep everyone happy.

No den would be complete without fairy lights.


Both kids were absolutely fascinated by them!


It even led to them having their first proper brawl, usually J just gives up whatever Cherry takes off him without a fight but he was not letting these go!


Eventually they made up though and he settled for playing with a doll instead.


This was such a fun way to spend an afternoon and we will definitely be building a den again soon.


This is my entry into The Furniture Market’s ‘Build A Blanket Fort’ competition. You don’t have to be a blogger to enter, all you need to do is take a photo of your den and use social media to share it to be in with a chance of winning £100 of Love2Shop vouchers. Visit the link above for all the details.

This post is in association with The Furniture Market.

    Oh that looks like so much fun! We always used to play forts with the laundry rack when we were little but ours is the wrong sort now – I’ll have to think of something for my girls!
