A mouse took a stroll through the deep dark wood
On went the mouse through the deep dark wood. An owl saw the mouse and the mouse looked good!
Meanwhile lurking in the woods the Gruffalo awaits!
On went the mouse through the deep dark wood. A snake saw the mouse and the mouse looked good!
But who is this creature with terrible claws and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws?
He has knobbly knees and turned out toes and a poisonous wart at the end of his nose.
His eyes are orange, his tongue is black, he has purple prickles all over his back!
Oh Help! Oh No!
IT’S A GRUFFALO!
It’s a must for all Gruffalo lovers young and old!
We even found the Gruffalo’s child
You will find this fantastic trail at Thorndon Country Park in Brentwood, Essex. Pay for a map at the visitors centre which costs 50p, the map is easy to follow and makes a lovely keepsake for the children. The paths are wide making it easy to push along pushchairs and for the children to run along.
Even thought the weather wasn’t exactly lovely spring weather we still had lots of fun and even the older child enjoyed finding the characters along the way, the boys had fun exploring the woods and climbing up fallen trunks.
