Stick Man Activity Trails partnership

Stick Man Activity Trails are based on the much-loved Stick Man picture books written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. The trails have been designed to encourage children aged 3-7 years to get outdoors and explore the natural world.

We are currently working with our partners at Magic Light Pictures to develop an exciting new trail. The colourful trail boards and associated activities can be installed at community gardens, city farms and other community green spaces to help engage children and families in the space. As well as being a great activity for visiting families, it can help you generate income for your site. 

Find out more about how the trails work in our online leaflet below. Information about the new trail and how to apply will be coming soon!
