  1. Use your markers or crayons to decorate a piece of paper that will fit around the outside of your container. Draw pictures of frogs, toads, and even bugs. Add some stars and moons to show that a toad only comes out at night.
  2. Glue or tape the decorated paper around the container.
  3. Go outside and find a moist, shady spot in your yard to put your toad house.
  4. Dig a small hole and lay your house on its side halfway in the ground.
