Build your own back garden den this weekend

As part of our collaboration with the Enid Blyton association to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Famous Five books, we're bringing you a guide to building the best den in town, come rain or shine.

As a child, nothing was ever quite as thrilling as building a den and declaring rule over your own private kingdom. Secret password? Of course. No parents allowed? Naturally. Your den, your rules…

Don’t forget to hang a sign on your new den! Here’s one we’ve made for you to fill in.


Fancy showing off your den? Show us a photo of your finished creation on Facebook, on Twitter, or email us at 

Why not take keep your den super secret by learning how to talk in code with our guide to semaphore, or get comfy in your new den and write your very own interactive adventuring story?
