On the Gruffalo Trail… (Part I)
Last week the Jones family decided to take a day out to go walking in the woods. I’ve loved to do this since I was a child and we used to go conker hunting at this time of year, and given our location in the South of England, we are positively spoiled for chioce when it comes to the great green outdoors.
This time we settled on the Moors Valley Country Park. I love this particular place chiefly because it’s so expansive, so beautiful, so peaceful….and it makes me feel like I’m in the Wilderness Lodge at Walt Disney World when I see the tall trees and log cabins.
We also chose this park because we knew that it had a Gruffalo Quiz Trail that we could follow through the forest and so we grabbed a card (for £2), wrangled a pencil (for free!) and headed out to see if we knew as much about the big fearsome lover of owl ice cream, scrambled snake and roasted fox as we thought. After all, our Little Adventurer can recite the book, what more could there be to know?
We began our trail at the end by accident ~ and decided to see how we measured up against the characters in the book…
|LOOK! I found a Gruffalo!|
By the time we had gotten to task three, asking us about the wildlife in the country park, Jensen Indiana was in full flow. For this question he decided to pen(cil) the Gruffalo a little letter…
Part II Coming Up!
Moors Valley is very near my folks house, can't wait to check that trail out!
Moors Valley is AMAZING! I'll post more soon on it, the play trail is fantastic. If you go in the week, it is nearly empty!
