We are the Den Kit Company with a mission to seek to inspire wonder and intrigue in the next generation through creative, fun and unprescribed outdoor play.
Appealing to children’s natural sense of adventure, our award-winning range of den-building and activity kits are designed to encourage outdoor play without rules or boundaries – freeing to explore their own creative talents for problem solving, critical thinking and ingenuity.
The Original Den Kit
The authentic, real, pukka, bona fide, truly Original Den Kit. Created especially for the inventive, creative, imaginative, ingenious, truly original you. Offering every child an outdoor experience whatever the weather, this Original Den Kit was lovingly designed to capture creative imaginations, encourage resourcefulness and innovation, provide escape and sanctuary, and most of all supply hours and hours of simple fun. For boys and girls, for everywhere and for years to come - the gift of adventure.
The Cottage Garden Den Kit
Surround yourself with the charm and vibrancy of a cottage garden in summertime. Use your skill and ingenuity to create a perfectly purple shelter, adorn it with the natural hues of your cotton bunting and gaze at the world through your kaleidoscope to see colours as vivid as your own imagination.
The Forest Den Kit
Versatility is the name of the game with this super-sized den building kit, designed for camouflaged adventures amongst the trees. Whether a team challenge or a solo expedition, this is a kit to inspire creativity, test bushcraft skills and clock up some awesome outdoor hours.
The New Potion Making Kit
Take your Potion Making Kit on an outdoor adventure and collect any special petals, leaves, grasses or soil to create a marvellous mixture of your own making. Add a pinch of natural colour, a splash of water, a sniff of a summer's day - and just imagine the spells you could cast.
The Fire On A Plate Kit
Ignite a lifelong passion for outdoor adventure with our Fire on a Plate Kit - designed to safely teach the vital skill of fire-lighting. Containing the fire on an enamel plate avoids scorching the earth underneath it, as well as restricting its size - though in no way diminishing the fun. The fire-steel and kapok tinder balls have been chosen for maximum success in young hands, increasing the unbeatable feeling of accomplishment for the fire-starter as they master this lifelong skill.
The Make A Pizza For The Birds Kit
Fancy yourself as a budding ornithologist? Entice your feathered friends to come closer by providing a delicious dining experience that is just perfect for pecking. Our reusable Make a Pizza for the Birds Kit is a simple, fun and brilliant way to coax nature even nearer.
The New Natural Fabric Art Kit
Plant dye paints, charcoal, wax resist and hapa zome - create your own original fabric designs using these four absorbing, ancient techniques using nature as your muse.
The Knot Skills Kit
An essential life-skill, this mini kit contains two lengths of cordage to practise on, a guide to six of the most important knots to master, and a handy bag to keep them together - making a useful and diverting little kit for any young explorer.
The Patterns In Nature Kit
Natural patterns can be subtle or showy - but however easy they are to spot, they’ve all evolved to provide growing things the best chance of survival. Use your wooden fly-eye kaleidoscope to create a glorious, shifting mosaic as you peer through it, or see if you can spot the patterns provided in nature that can be just as spectacular.
The Bug Spotter Kit
This little kit contains a bug-pot with magnifier-lid, allowing a closer inspection of the captured mini-beast inside. A set of 9 illustrated bug identification cards offer further information on how to identify your bug - and the role these tiny creatures play in our ecosystem. All contained within a reusable jute bag, ready to take on mini-beast adventure in your back garden, the park, the beach or just the nearest rock to peer beneath.
Ignite Their Imagination Film
Proving that Christmas shopping really has begun in earnest, we have released our Christmas Campaign Film to showcase and celebrate the magic of outdoor play. Grab yourself a cuppa (mulled or otherwise) and turn your volume up - this one is sure to warm your cockles, and there’s no Kevin the Carrot in sight. With thanks to our young wildlings and the magic they created.
