Elf houses

Build a cosy home for woodland elves and fairies.

Head to the woods and hunt for natural building materials you can use to make an elf house.

  • Look for sticks, leaves, fallen flowers and seeds.
  • Think about the walls, roof, doors and windows. Don’t forget furniture!
  • Leave your forest friends a house-warming gift to welcome them to their new home.

Elves and fairies are very secretive, so you might not see much of your new neighbours!
