We used Silver Birch branches and one big log of hardwood for the large rounds. We drilled and screwed the bigger support trunks to a pine board base and drilled and screwed the large rounds to the support trunks but everything else was stuck together with hot glue.
The girls and I had loads of fun creating and gluing together the stairs and rope ladder and all the little accessories. We found an old rusty pulley and some string to make a basket and pulley system and some fake ‘vine leaves’ to add a bit of greenery.
Along with a few new Schleich boy fairies/elves our big boy declared it ‘the best present ever’… along with play dough and Lego that is!
