Stick Man Activity Trails

Learn more about the natural environment with our unique Stick Man trails at community gardens, city farms and care farms across the UK. These twiggy trails are based on the much-loved Stick Man picture books written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Alex Scheffler. They feature colourful trail boards and associated activities and have been designed to encourage children aged 3-7 years to get outdoors and explore the natural world.
