Fairy hunt

Enter into a magical world and spot tiny traces of elves and fairies.

Tread carefully through the woodland and keep your eyes peeled for signs left by woodland people.

  • Look for secret doorways beneath trees and among rocks
  • Remember, leave everything you find behind so that the fairies can use it again
  • Have you spotted anything else the little people could use?

Fairies and elves take care of the woods and trees and are very shy, so you might not see them when you visit – but that doesn’t mean they’re not there. How many signs can you spot?
