Making a Dark Den

Posted: 6 December 2021

As part of our topic on day and night we have been exploring the dark. One of our projects was to make a dark den. The children knew that to make their den dark they needed to keep out the light. Some of the children collaborated for a long time to create their own dark den using fabric and pegs. However, it was difficult to block out the light. We then turned the story boat into a dark den and shared a book by torchlight. Since then, the children have enjoyed playing with torches in the dark den, exploring their shadows and the excitement of the dark.
