Hope you're all full of chocolate and excitement like these little munchkins:
There were a LOT of joyous whoops from the 4 youngest members of the party this weekend when it was announced after the Easter Egg hunt we would be going back to the same place as last year, which was then a Gruffalo's Child Forest Trail, but which is now a Room on The Broom Forest Trail!
All 4 of the children (we had two little friends staying for the weekend who are 2 and 3) love the Room on the Broom story and were really keen to see how the story had been brought to life... both by the magnificent chainsaw sculptures and the real life Witch & Dragon they saw:
|Patrick inspecting the Wand and the Witch's Broom|
|Not sure about that Dragon!! |
(but the row of Gruffalo's Children in the background are impressive!)
|Seren, Evie and Patrick riding on the Witch's new broomstick|
|But far more fun was watching Uncle Olly try and climb the totem pole in the playground!|
|Not even Patrick!!|
|And of course who could resist dressing up |
as the Witch?
The Forest of Dean Heritage Centre is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area and if you live close enough to visit twice in a year, then the annual family pass is a very sensible buy as our two request to go at least once a month and EVERY time we have weekend visitors (children or adults!)
We had a great Easter weekend... but now there is much chocolate to eat up and surely an afternoon film to snooze in front of!
