Last week, we posted about a new competition that Philips Lighting are running where you can win a den building kit; remember, my kids really had a hell of a lot of fun doing it all….

Den building can be so much fun - take a look at this!

Well, inspired by the #MyDen campaign from the company, a number of bloggers, including myself will be attending a Britmums Hangout all about den building and how we can inspire and encourage our children to den build; whether they are looking to make a cave, castle, boat or palace.

My kids tend to spend days in their den afterwards, and become most miffed when we have to take it down…so how can we encourage this activity without taking over?

When is the #MyDen Britmums Hangout?

The hangout will take place on Tuesday 30 September at 11:00am and we will all be sharing our experiences of den building. We will also be joined by Tim Meaker, a lighting designer, who will be showing us how we can make our children’s bedrooms more inspiring for them…all with a few lights and simple techniques. They better be simple *it is me they are talking to* ;-)

The bloggers will also be asking their own questions, and you to can submit questions both during and before the call, so why not come along and find out how to turn your children into little construction champions?

If the hangout gets them building, why not enter the #MyDens competition too. Here, Philips Lighting is asking parents to submit photos, drawings and even videos of their children’s dens for a chance to win

How to join the hangout?

This is the technical bit *runs and hides*. You can watch the event through G+, and live while it happens on our BritMums G+ page (  You can also submit those questions for Tim here as well. So ask away.

Note: The G+ hangout is sponsored by Philips Lighting and highlights their Philips and Disney Imaginative Lighting range, that children can use in their rooms…or dens. The Disney-themed lights were designed to inspire your little heroes’ creativity, projecting a world of light around them, lighting up their dens and play spaces.
