Parents, are you looking for a creative way to support your home-schooling? This ‘design a den’ competition challenge is now open to primary school age children in South Yorkshire and Derbyshire/Peak District and offers a fun and constructive way for children to learn more about design, construction and engineering. There are three age categories; 4-6 years, 7-9 years, 10-11 year, and the winner of each will receive an iPad. Runners up in each category will receive an art and crafts set.
Children are encouraged to design their den thinking about what it would be made of, what would it look like and what activities would they want to do in it? Children can then either build their den, make a model of it, draw it using pens/paint and paper, or design it on a computer, thinking especially hard on how they might use recycled items to create it. The more imaginative the better!
