We really are super lucky……we won a Sprite Den!
Spending lots of time on the internet I often come across competitions so I entered a competition at the end of January to win a Sprite Den from Dragonswood. So what a wonderful surprise to find out that we won this fantastic Den just a week ago!
We told the kids what we had won and we spent a week getting very excited about our new den and we have had a super weekend of playing in it so far!
The den is great, with enough space inside for four pre-schoolers, we know, our neighbours were over for a visit when our Den arrived. Also there is just about enough space for two pre-schoolers and a mummy…..and there is more than enough room for just a mummy! Once inside the kids love to pull down the flaps and close themselves in, it is really warm in there, a fantastic hide out against the elements.
For kids with vivid imaginations the Sprite Den can be a cave, a rocket, a boat, a deep dark forest….anything you can dream of, my two have had all sorts of adventures already, it really is fascinating to watch. I am usually called upon to be something big and scary like a dragon, alien, pirate or bear, I am so happy that they have found something that they can play together with, rather than bickering over.
When we first got our den we had celebratory cake inside and since then the kids have had a couple of picnics inside, perfect for this odd weather and I know that when the sun does finally decide to come out properly, the kids will be able to use the den to find a bit of shade inside.
Isabellas best bit about the Sprite Den is “the hiding, hiding is the best” and Williams best bit – “we can hide from the dragons inside”, this says it all really!
So, a massive thank you from us all to Tom, Ollie and all at Dragonswood who have been so kind, we love our Sprite Den!!!
