Ignite a lifelong passion for outdoor adventure with this 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.

Why We Love Them

We love this newest addition to The Den Kit collection!  As they so rightly say, this kit will help to "ignite a lifelong passion for outdoor adventure"! A perfect opportunity to spend time in the outdoors with your wee adventurers, connecting with nature as you master the lifelong skill of fire-lighting.

The Brand


"With roots in teaching and Forest School, our goal is to bring children closer to nature. The Den Kit Company started life as Flibberty - the seed of an idea that was planted, watered and tended by Kay and Jo who, as ex-primary school teachers and Forest School Practitioners, are both passionate advocates of outdoor play.

As the company has grown, so has the team behind it - each one with a vital role in maintaining the integrity of our vision: To inspire wonder and intrigue in the next generation through creative, fun and unprescribed outdoor play.

Our Den Kits were designed to encourage children outside - whether a tiny backyard, on top of a hill, in a meadow, field, forest, beach or balcony. The promise of a hand-crafted space in which to set up a temporary retreat is tempting to children (and adults) of all ages, and with little or no previous den-building experience. No single-use-plastic, no batteries, no complicated instructions - this is inclusive, simple, unadulterated fun.

We are now a thriving rural business, based in an old dairy surrounded by farmland and woods that offer the ideal backdrop to our photoshoots. Our products are all designed by us, tested by our expert team of young dengineers, sourced with sustainability in mind and assembled in our workshop here in Shropshire.
