Great British Camping … an easy DIY play camping stove

As a child, some of the very best camping trips that I went on were ones which didn't even take me beyond my front door. Two clothes rails, a draped sheet and some contraband snacks, and I was in heaven. No checking the weather and no chance of being stuck in traffic. In fact, I'm not sure why I don't do that now I'm grown up. It sounds wonderful!

My two boys share my love of indoor hideouts and are forever asking to eat and sleep in their den. It's been one of my best buys and has saved countless sheets and blankets from their sticky fingerprints. But one thing which I've not been able to find is a little toy camping stove for them to take with them on their 'holidays' to cook all of their meals on. So, we decided to make our very own.
