Sugar Plum Fort

In this delightful project, your Scout Elf will salute the time-honored nutcracker theme by constructing a fort complete with towers and colorful banners.


  • Rolls of bath tissue
  • Low-tack decorative tape from Scout Elves at Play® Stick Quick or other decorative sticky tape
  • Straws
  • Claus Couture Collection® Sugar-Plum Soldier
  • Claus Couture Collection® Snowy Sugar-Plum Duo


  1. As shown in the picture, your Scout Elf will arrange and stack rolls of bath tissue to create a fort.
  2. Next, your elf will tear off strips of low-tack decorative tape to trim the rolls of bath tissue.
  3. Your elf will create a walkway using several squares of bath tissue trimmed on either side with low-tack decorative tape.
  4. To make each flag, your elf will tear off a piece of low-tack decorative tape and wrap it around a straw; then your elf will attach a small piece of decorative tape in the shape of a flag at the top of each wrapped straw.
  5. After adding decorative items and planting the flags in the towers, your elf will slip into a themed costume.
