Halloween and Half Term Trails

You probably know by know that my family and I (especially me!) absolutely LOVE a trail! They keep the kids happy when we’re Out and About and they can be so much fun. The kids love them as there’s usually a prize at the end from stickers to colouring sheets and sometimes chocolate!

These activities can do done independently and are for everyone to enjoy. Please be mind-full about the local residents, wildlife and of course social distancing rules.
