Forestry Commission Stick Man Trail

From 28 November 2015 the Forestry Commission Stick Man self-led trails will be located in High Lodge, Thetford and in 23 other Forestry Commission forests across England, allowing children and families to join Stick Man on his forest adventure.

While following the trail route, children and families can take part in activities based on their favourite book character.

The trails will lead children and families through the forests using activity points which allow them to live the epic adventures of Stick Man, whilst also learning about the importance of forests for people, wildlife and timber.

In addition, there will be activity packs available for £3, which will include a fun-packed activity leaflet, sheets to create your own Stick Man rubbing and pipe cleaners to make your own Stick Man, a chunky crayon and a pencil. These special packs will encourage children to discover the great outdoors, in magical woodland surroundings.

Further details of trails and free downloadable activity sheets are available from
