The Stick Man Trail at Moors Valley 2016

The Stick Man trail was last at Moors Valley back in 2013 and the kids loved all the activities there were to do as we walked around the self-led trail and now it is back with new challenges and a new route to explore until the end of February and because the kids saw the film on Christmas Day they were even more excited to take part and of course Stick Man himself had to come with us.

We planned our visit around a break in the rain to help Stick Man find his way back to his family tree and be reunited with his Stick Lady Love, and his Stick children three.

The trail is basically the play trail backwards and leads you through the forest using activity points with activities based on the Stick Man book allowing them to live the epic adventures of Stick Man, finding characters from the book and learning about the importance of forests for people, wildlife and timber.

We had to build a cosy nest, trying and hit a pine cone with a stick from 3 metres away, find a curves stick to make a bow and arrow and of course, make our very own Stick Man.

You can also buy activity packs for £3, which include a fun-packed activity leaflet, sheets to create your own Stick Man rubbing and pipe cleaners to make your own Stick Man, a chunky crayon and a pencil, but they are not essential as the boards have all the challenges on and the trail is clearly signposted.

The kids had lots of fun doing all the activities, squelching in the mud and sploshing their way through the muddy puddles and as they did so well I promised them a visit to the park afterwards. The park for the older kids was open but for no apparent reason the park for Sebby’s age was closed off which was a real shame as there was nothing really for him to do apart from watch the miniature train as it trundled around the outside of the park.

Despite the park being closed, we had a lot of fun doing the Stick Man Trail and you can sign up to the Stick Man and friends email newsletter to receive exclusive offers, free activity sheets, information on events and more.

    A shame some of the park was closed but apart from that it looks like a great way to enjoy a walk around the park and looks like the children did really well with the challenges as they went. I feel I missed out on this one with all mine now to old to enjoy it I might just have a Stick Man themed activity hour here on the farm. Thank you for sharing your day there on #CountryKids

  10. What a wonderful activity for kids to do .I like the idea of the interactive play where they get to participate and make their own stickman and do rubbings.

    Looks great – Syd was a bit little last time it was there, but think we may head out tomorrow, as long as it is going to be dry by then!

  16. It’s hard to believe that we did the Stick Man Trail on the same weekend as you but with such different weather up here! Shame that Sebby’s park was shut, but looks like you all still had lots of fun. There were no sticks to be found on our trip – but lots of snow instead!
