Doesn't matter
A sheet, two chairs, some pegs

Giving your toddler a special, undercover place to play will help them to understand the idea of ‘space’, and give them a sense of independence.

It’s easy enough to construct using some basic items; simply drape a large sheet across a garden table or a couple of chairs and secure it in place using clothes pegs. To make it extra comfy for your toddler, add a blanket and some cushions.

Why not let them use their imagination by thinking about what their special hideaway could be? Is it a castle? A cave? A playhouse? It can be anything they like!
