When it comes to World Book Day poor Ted always misses out because it falls on a Thursday which is one of the days he doesn't go to nursery. So when one of his nursery friend's Mums contacted me to ask if we wanted to go to the forest for a walk and a Gruffalo Hunt I thought it was a great idea!
I had heard about the new augmented reality Gruffalo app and was keen to give it a try. We live locally to Salcey Forest (Northampton) where they have a Gruffalo trail so I downloaded the app and we were good to go.
It was a really nice spring morning (it is spring now right?!) so perfect for a walk with the kids so we bundled up and headed to the forest. The other Mums were so much more prepared than I was so I do need to invest in wellies and outdoor gear for Ted.
We had a lovely walk and the kids really enjoyed finding the Gruffalo characters on the posters around the forest especially when it meant they got to have their picture taken with the characters on our phone screens!
