Step 1: Ingredients
1.LOTS of leaves
4, a tarp
Card board works better but if you dont have enough a tarp will work but not as well.
Step 2: How to Build
First you rake up a bunch of leaves into a big pile.
Second you decide where the entrence then dig down to the ground in that spot to the middle and put the leaves to the side.
Now you should have a circular room with no roof.You take a tall stick and put it in the ground so its sticking straight up then put the cardboard pieces over the top of the leaves and stick making a triangle roof like a tent if this does not cover the whole thing take the other cardboard put a part over the first part so more is cover up with cardboard i had no cardboard left so I covered the rest with a tarp you should have something that looks just like leaves with cardboard not really a leaf house so take the remaining leaves and maybe rake some more leave to cover the cardboard making it look just like a regular old leaf pile but its really a leaf house.
