How to make a castle from a mole hill

Create a castle fit for a moley king or queen.

Look out for molehills when you’re playing outside, and get building.

  • Find lots of different natural items like leaves and twigs to decorate the castle
  • Don’t forget to create a moat and drawbridge
  • Be as imaginative as you like – try making turrets and flags too

Molehills are made when moles push the earth out from their underground tunnels.
