Halloween Trail

For the first day of our half term we went on our annual trip to a local country park to do their Halloween Trail. 
The tradition that has evolved over the past few years is to do the trail and then visit a nearby garden centre for a hot chocolate.

It was hard not to miss the dragon hiding up high in tree tops, although we thought it looked like a fairly friendly one rather than a evil fire breathing one.

Halfway round we paused for a few games of egg and spoon, with a bit of a Halloween twist.
I had packed these tiny ceramic spoons in my bag which were used to balance a chocolate eye ball on.

T set the course for the race which he decided should involve climbing over a couple of fallen branches. As you can see my mum had a bit of difficulty with this part which the children (and I) found highly amusing!

An entertaining start to our week.
