From 3 October 2014 until 22 February 2015, self-led Gruffalo’s Child activity trails will be in place at Moors Valley near Ringwood, and 23 other Forestry Commission forests across England, continuing the nationwide celebrations of the 10th anniversary of the book’s publication.
While following the trail route, families can take part in activities based on their favourite book’s characters. The trail will lead them through the forest using activity boards to help them discover nature and woods at a time of the year when forests are at their most beautiful and the animals are preparing for winter.In addition, there will be activity packs available for £2, which will include a foraging bag, a fun-packed activity leaflet, a colouring-in sheet and a special Gruffalo's Child sticker. These special packs will encourage children to learn more about the behaviour of animals in autumn and how they search for food, create shelters and prepare for the cold winter months.
