A space of my own!

Even in the most loving homes, we get on top of each other from time to time. Today’s idea is all about making a den, a place to feel safe and secure

At the same time, we learn all about what it is like to feel good, and how to manage if we feel stressed

And about personal space and why it matters, about being in control of things – and there is no limit to the stories and games we can make up in a well made den!

You can use a blanket, behind the sofa – anything you have to hand. Or take it outside (following health advice always) if you have a garden or balcony

This kind of space can be very helpful for children who have sensory issues or who get over-stressed quite easily. Click here for some more ideas that might help them
