How to make a minibeast mansion

Design and build your own minibeast mansion!

All animals need somewhere to sleep and to hide from predators, and minibeasts are no different.

  • Think about what might want to live in your mansion – some minibeasts prefer dark, damp places and others like bright sunshine
  • Gather sticks, moss, leaves, bark and other woodland items together
  • Get building! Make sure there are lots of places for the creatures to hide

Your mansion can be as big or small as you like, but build it on different levels using different materials so the minibeasts have lots of places to hide.
