How to make a minibeast palace

Create a home for creepy crawlies

Find a sheltered spot and build a marvellous minibeast palace.

  • Use twigs, leaves and grass to make it cosy
  • Different minibeasts like different places to hide – twig towers are great
  • Minibeasts will hibernate, munch through and lay their eggs in the palace

Next time you go to the woods, check to see if any creepy crawlies have moved in!
