Our country park holds lots of event’s through the year and I always plan on going, but something always gets in the way! So I was determined to take Ethan for the self-guided Halloween walk. It was described as having a trail to follow and was advertised for over four year olds. I was a little worried if Ethan would understand the trail if we had to follow and collect clues.
When we arrived we went to the visitor centre to collect the map. I was pleased to see that it was a lotto game and we had to spot the pictures along the trail. Perfect for our little guy. It was a £1.00 to take part but because Ethan was in fancy dress he could take part for free.
We set off ready to look for the pictures.
It was a very simple activity but perfect for Ethan. He looked for the pictures and helped Darren cross them off.
We even found an owl on our travels.
We walked for over just over a mile, perfect for little legs. Ethan found all the clues and won a lolly which Daddy ate!
The only thing I did think was a shame was that they didn’t dress any part of the wood with spiders, cobwebs, ghosts or witches. I think they would have been fun but perhaps they aren’t aloud to do that.
I’m hoping to do this again next year as it was nice to get out in the fresh air and take part in an activity that Ethan understands. It also gave Ethan a reason to dress up for Halloween as we haven’t embraced trick or treating yet.
