We’ve built fairy houses before out of sticks, stones, and other yard stuffs, but we’ve never tried for a toad habitat. When we do make one, here’s how we plan to go about it (though I’m sure my four-year-old will be changing the plan as we go along!):
We’ll use my old coffee cans for the homes themselves. My daughter and I will paint them with fun, earthy colors—nothing to bright to attract predators, but also nothing too dull, either. Maybe we’ll paint some fun symbols on them; she really likes the ones we did on her rain stick.
