Fairy doors

Invite fairies to visit your garden through a secret door!

Make a magical fairy door out of lolly sticks, buttons and beads.

  • Stick the lolly sticks together in a door shape.
  • Add a doorknob, letterbox, or window.
  • Place your door against a tree, away from big feet and curious cats.

Fairies and elves are very shy so you might not see them, but listen out for them knocking on your door...

Watch our video and make some doors for the fairies in your garden.
