Wintery Wander in the Woods - Gruffalo's Child Trail

Saturday, 20 December 2014

Little Miss A and I have been very housebound this week as she's had conjunctivitis so we haven't been able to go to places that she's directly in contact with lots of children and we've missed out on all her playgroup Christmas parties. Boo!

With Mr MoaB working this weekend, I was keen to get out for a few hours and get some fresh air. As we were up early, Little Miss A and I set off for an early morning walk in Wendover Woods.

I decided to do the Gruffalo's Child Trail again as it's just the right sort of distance for Little Miss A to be able to walk herself and she enjoys looking out for the trail signs!

Going so early in the morning meant that we had the whole trail to ourselves! It was very chilly though so I tried to make sure that we kept up a fair pace so that we didn't get too cold.

I love watching Little Miss A's reaction to what she sees along the way and it's brilliant that she can now identify the animals and say the words herself!

It's always good to spend time at the Gruffalo sculpture. He really does have a nice spot with a great view!

Here's my original post when we did the Gruffalo's Child Trail back in October. The trail is going to be in Forestry Commission woods until February. Then it's going to change to an activity trail based on the 'Superworm' story - another book by Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler. So I'll have to get hold of a copy of this book to start reading this to Little Miss A to introduce her to the characters.

I'm glad we got out today and it was a fun wander with Little Miss A if a tad on the chilly side!
