Gruffalo Olympic summer activity

Forestry England is gearing up to ignite Olympic-sized excitement in the nation’s forests this summer with a fantastic addition to their beloved Gruffalo 25th birthday trails. Alongside the brilliant family trail, visitors will be able to take part in an extra dose of fun as they embark on a quest to find hidden Gruffalo character signs and enjoy Olympic-inspired challenges.

Families and forest explorers alike are invited to immerse themselves in the thrill of the hunt by finding the signs and then attempting some sporty challenges that promise to test their skills and agility.

Adding a delightful twist to the adventure, players must keep their eyes peeled for scattered letters along the way. These letters hold the key to decoding an Olympic-themed word.

This free Gruffalo activity will be available at 21 forests across England from 23 July 2024, promising a summer filled with unforgettable forest adventures. At selected forest locations, there will also be a chance to meet the legendary Gruffalo himself, adding an extra sprinkle of magic to the experience.

For even more fun, download the free Gruffalo Picnic Party Park. This is jam-packed with everything you need to host your own Gruffalo 25th birthday party picnic, from party invites to food ideas and party games!
