Make a Toad House

Invite toads to come live in your backyard by making them a home.

What You Need

  • ceramic flower pot
  • paint or markers
  • paintbrush
  • small rocks
  • saucer

What You Do

  • Step 1: Decorate the pot

    Decorate the pot with paints or markers.

  • Step 2: Find a place for the house

    Find a cool, shady area outside. Arrange the rocks in a semi-circle, with a gap for an entrance. Place the pot on the rocks so it is tipped on the diagonal.

  • Step 3: Provide Water

    Dig down into the earth and put the saucer so that the lip is level with the soil. Fill it with water. Check the saucer regularly during dry weather and add a bit of water as needed.


You can also decorate the pot by gluing pebbles to the sides.
