My eldest daughter loves watching wildlife in our garden. Earlier this year we built an outdoor hideout for the hedgehog who likes to visit the garden looking for food. We collected twigs and leaves and built a den, which to the untrained eye looks like a pile of sticks and leaves.
This though is perfect for the hedgehog to hide away in. It is in a sheltered spot in a place the dog cannot get to so it is perfect for our hedgehog.
I decided to show the girls other outdoor dens and hideaways for all the animals that visit the garden. We have one for the bees
One for Ladybirds
Even the birds have tried to build a nest in our garden
My eldest loved looking at all the different animals dens, and houses. This inspired her to create her own den whilst I was cooking dinner. First she tried with just a cardboard box,
Which worked OK until her sister wanted to come in and she wanted her chair,
She soon decided that it was a bit of a squish with her chair in too so she asked me to move the table back for her so she could make her hideaway under the table.
Her sister was able to join her and they could both sit on the chairs, they enjoyed a tea party
If you wondered what the box was for at the side of the table, well its for parking the car in
This day I love who lives in a house like this?
