The Superworm Trail in Wendover Woods

Tuesday, 7 April 2015

Having followed the Gruffalo Trail and Gruffalo's Child Trail in Wendover Woods several times over the last year, it was time to go on the Superworm Trail when we visited the Woods last week.

The Trail changed in March and is now based on another book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. We were fortunate to win a copy of this book recently thanks to a competition on Twitter run by Mini Travellers.

Hip, hip, hooray for SUPERWORM!

As with the previous trails, there are a series of boards along the way with various activities. I think this story is aimed at slightly older children anyway and Little Miss A is still a bit too young to do most of the activities, but we all still enjoyed the walk and she just likes finding each board.

And of course there's lots of fun to be had when it has recently rained as it means lots of muddy puddles to splash in!

We were at the Woods quite early the morning we went so we had the Trail to ourselves! At the end of the Trail we had to say 'Hi' to the Gruffalo statue that is still in place. It's going to be there for a while yet which is great news.

After a quick hot chocolate in the Cafe in the Woods to warm up a bit, we then went over to the playground. Little Miss A headed straight for her favourite area with the instruments. We had several great renditions of 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star!'

There are Superworm Trails in woods throughout the UK. The trail is in place until October 2015. Full details can be found on the Forestry Commission website.

As we're frequent visitors to the Woods, I know there will be several more walks around the Trail over the next few months.

  1. This looks really fun! We have quite a few trails near us but I've not taken the kids in a while. Well your post has made me feel a little guilty for not taking them so I think a trip out to the woods is on for tomorrow. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Sorry to make you feel a bit guilty Ricky but so glad I've inspired you! Have fun in the Woods tomorrow!
