KN3A1758(sm)On the hunt for something different to do, today we went on a local “scarecrow trail”.


KN3A1746(sm)Local businesses and residents in a local village have made displays relating to different nursery rhymes. We bought a map of the trail for £1 and set off. It took us about 60-90 minutes to make it around about 12 of them.


“Incey Wincey Spider…”KN3A1710(sm)

Here are some of our favourites.

“Baa baa black sheep…” (loved the hand written sign and the writing on the bags of wool!)


Dr Foster went to Gloucester…KN3A1715(sm)(complete with some details on how it was done)KN3A1717(sm)(and great accessories)KN3A1718(sm)“Pussy Cat Pussy Cat where have you been…”KN3A1782(sm)“I frightened a little mouse under her chair…”KN3A1783(sm)Oh dear what can the matter be, three old ladies stuck in the lavatory…”

(even better – these old ladies were set up to talk to us!!)

KN3A1721(sm)KN3A1719(sm)The kids voted it 8/10 which for a cheap activity was a great result! And for the amount of walking involved I was amazed Dx didn’t moan once!

“The Queen of hearts made some tarts…”

KN3A1753(sm)Dx needed a little help to “touch” the spider and get it to fall down to Little Miss Muffet.

“Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet…”

KN3A1743(sm)“My grandfather’s clock was too large for the shelf…”
(this one was quite creepy looking!!)
