Ben and Holly magic this half term

Little Sis is a fan of Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom, so she was pretty excited to open a parcel containing the new Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom: Planet Bong DVD (which was released on October 6th) and a copy of Christmas at the North Pole book. The brand new Ben and Holly’s website launched at the end of September, so kids and parents across the nation can enjoy a variety of Ben and Holly magic this Autumn!

Gruffalo’s Child Trail at Wendover Woods

This morning we headed out to Wendover Woods. As part of the 10th anniversary of The Gruffalo’s Child the Forestry Commission are running self-led activity trails, you may remember we walked the Gruffalo Trail earlier this year.

As soon as the children saw the signs they were excited!

Gruffalo's Child trailWe watched the Gruffalo and the Gruffalo’s Child the night before to refresh our memories of the story and characters.

Gruffalo's Child trailThis is Little Sis’s version of thumbs up, it took her a while to get it, but you can see she was super happy to be running around the woods.

Gruffalo's Child trailThere were huge images of the main characters hidden amongst the trees and signs with things to look out for and activities to do. We played in the den building area again and the children walked along fallen trees. The huge Gruffalo sculpture was at the end of the trail, looking slightly worse for wear since our last visit.

Black Park

After our busy day in south London we decided to stay local today. It’s been a while since we visited Black Park but it’s a great place to sail our model boats and the Farmers Market was on too.

We looked round the stalls hoping to find something for lunch but instead came away with fudge and popcorn! Big Brother wanted to have his face painted and he loved being a scary skeleton.
