We were really excited to hear about the latest Forestry Commission trail featuring Julia Donaldson’s wonderful Superworm!
Superworm is super-long. Superworm is super-strong. Watch him wiggle! See him squirm! Hip, hip, hooray for SUPERWORM!
We picked up our Superworm activity pack from the cafe which included a mini Superworm book, trail leaflet and string to make your own Superworm hero!
Then we set off to explore the trail with some friends.
The trail was similar to the Gruffalo Trail and Gruffalo’s Child Trail but without the large characters hanging in the trees. The children loved running to find the boards and following the activities on them.
After our walk we shared a lovely picnic and went den building in the woods. The children made this impressive den with a little help from the grown ups.
The Superworm trail is free but the activity pack costs £3.50. More information about the Superworm trail at Wendover Woods can be found on the Forestry Commission website.
Today we headed to Portsmouth for a family lunch by the sea. The weather was lovely and sunny and we enjoyed watching the boats come and go in the harbour.
We had a little look around the shops and a delicious lunch.
There was also some running around in the fresh sea air by the small people which tired them out so much Big Brother fell asleep on the way home.
We wanted to have a last nice day out in Buttercup so headed south to Brooklands Museum. They had a special Austin Morris Day so there was plenty to see and do.
We loved the Members’ Banking which was the steepest part of the old track, reaching nearly 29ft high.
As well as the Test Hill and Track, there were historic cars and planes to look at and a lovely bus museum. They were able to try out the bus drivers’ seat for size but it was nothing compared to Buttercup!
