As a child there was nothing we enjoyed more than making a den under the dining room table on a rainy day. We’d gather some old sheets and blankets and hang them over the top under we were completely hidden underneath. We’d then drag all sorts of things in there to play with. I love these ideas as inspiration but I wonder if they would limit imaginative play, our den could become anything, these are slightly more limited, I enjoyed looking at them for inspiration though – I’ve got an ugly Ikea dining room table that has seen better days and needs something doing to it before it can go in the playroom!
