This is a great little mushroom craft for Spring, Summer and Autumn and I think it goes really well with woodland and forest study themes and all your favourite fairy stories too. Although having said that, it’s a super cute toadstool craft for any time of year really. We’ve got a little display of them on our windowsill and I’m sure we’ll be keeping them out all year round!
This simple cut and stick fairy house craft is really easy to make with the printable template. It comes in both black and white for kids to enjoy decorating themselves, and also full colour.
This Fairy House Mushroom Craft is of course super fun to make and play with but it’s also great for skill development too. You can use it for:
- fine motor scissor skills
- following step by step instructions
- combining with a woodland, forest or fairy writing activity
- combining with a woodland or forest study unit
- a reward or extension activity in the classroom
- decorating homes and classrooms

How To Make Mushroom Houses
1 – Down load and print the fairy house templates. Click here to get yours from our shop.
2 – If you are using the black and white version then colour them in. You only need to colour the outer ring of the grass and the fairy doors and windows that you intend to use.
3 – Cut out all the template pieces.
4 – Roll the mushroom stalk into an open ended cone and glue it into place.
5 – Chose your doors and windows and glue them onto the mushroom stalk.
6 – Glue the two flat edges of the mushroom cap together to make a wide cone.
7 – Cut all around the outer edge of the grass to the inner circle. Fold the grass over to make a dish shape, with the green on the outside.
8 – Put each mushroom stalk into the right sized mushroom base. (Small, medium and large.) Put the right sized mushroom cap on top of each mushroom.
