Stick Man Activity Trail

Monday, 30 May 2016


Dot doesn't watch television. That said, she likes Stick Man. Scratch that. She loves him!

She is always running around the house shouting, "Stick Man, Me!" 

Like most families with little ones, we recorded it over the Christmas holidays and saved it on our planner. 




I'd heard of Stick Man, as my niece loves Julia Donaldson books, but I've never bought it or read the book to Dot.


Anyway, after many, many viewings of Stick Man, (so much so that I now find myself repeating it during the day), we found out that a local woods has a Stick Man Activity Trail and decided to have a look.

We didn't know what to expect, but it seemed quite exciting as we arrived. I don't know about the boys or Dot, but I was really looking forward to it!



What I liked was that the boards were not too close or too far apart. It was perfect for little legs!




There was also plenty to see as we went round. In between the numbered trail boards were also pictures to spot, hidden amongst the trees.


At each board, there is a different activity.





Like the brass rubbing, some of the activities can be done with activity pack, which only cost £3, and it comes with everything you need.

Unfortunately, I only realised and bought one at the end! I guess we'll just have to visit again! 


We had a brilliant afternoon along the trail. Even Mikey, who is nearly 12, had a great time. He was not only helping Dot, but he was getting involved on his own too! At one point, he was stood in the woods doing star jumps without a care!

I really recommend it to any little fans of Stick Man, or, like me, any big fans!




There are 25 different locations for the Stick Man Activity Trail.   To find one near you, head over to http://www.forestry.gov.uk/stickman

  3. What a lovely little trail! I've never heard of stick man and I'm not sure I can add this to the collection my toddlers are obsessed with, but I will keep an eye out. We have similar trails nearby and they're so much fun for the kids. We enjoy the walk and they enjoy the distractions of hunting for pictures x #whatevertheweather

  6. There's a few Stickman/Gruffalo/ROAB trails around that I've heard of but never been to yet. Mini R is OBSESSED with gruffalo so we need to visit one. This looks great fun. #JustAnotherLinky

  9. We have a stick man trail relatively near us but we have yet to try it (extortionate parking prices are the main reason we haven't), but there are plenty of lovely woodland walks that we do go on that my 10 yr old daughter loves x
