Stick Man Adventure Trail.
Last year (woah, was it really that long ago?!) we visited the Alice Holt Forest in Hampshire to find the Gruffalo. A few weeks ago, we went back again, this time to follow the Stick Man Trail. The trails are dotted with animal signs, which the boys loved spotting, and activities. It was retty wet and muddy when we went, so we chose not to do a few but the boys had great fun splashing in the puddles and squelching through the mud while reciting the story. We played in the dens, some of them were pretty impressive. made nests out of sticks and listened for the birds. We even found a friendly robin, who seemed to follow us along the trail. Once we'd found the Stick Man, which was hilarious because he blended so well with the trees the boys walked straight past him, we had lunch on the picnic benches and drank coffee while the boys played in the adventure playground. Joshua was begging to go to the park as soon as we started the trail! It was a fun, free afternoon, making one of the boys' favourite books come alive!
