For the first time in what seems like an age, last week the weather picked up enough for us to spend some time outdoors and go on a little adventure.
Arthur absolutely loves Julia Donaldson’s and Axel Scheffler’s books, particularly Stick Man, since the adaptation was on TV over Christmas. I’d heard that the Forestry Commission have set up some Stick Man trails around the country and so we thought we’d head over to our nearest one at Haughmond Hill, Shrewsbury.
We bought the activity pack (£3) and Arthur really enjoyed playing the little activities, such as bark rubbing, identifying leaves and feeling the different textures of the trees.
The walk was the perfect length for a toddler – Arthur didn’t get bored at all and was happy to walk the whole way. It was also buggy/stroller friendly and there were all of the family friendly facilities there which we needed, such as changing facilities and a café. I’ll definitely be submitting this walk to ‘Can Kids Go?’ as it is very family friendly.
These activity trails are such a brilliant way to encourage little ones to enjoy the outdoors. We loved it and so I thought I’d share our photos with you all.
Have you been on a Stick Man Trail? I’d love to see your pictures.
