Superworm trail at Wendover Woods

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!

Superworm TrailThe 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.

A day by the sea

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.

Our last day with Buttercup

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.
