From Friday 11 January 2019 at Sherwood Pines, you can head on an exciting forest journey with Zog and his friends!
We visited Sherwood Pines (roughly a 40 minute drive from Doncaster) over Christmas and were excited to learn that Zog would be paying a visit in 2019!
Following the success of the Gruffalo, Stick Man and Highway Rat trails at Forestry Commission sites across England, Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s magical children’s picture book, Zog, will be the new activity trail for families to enjoy in the nation’s forests this winter. Launching on 11 January 2019, the trails will follow the premiere of the animated special from Magic Light Pictures, on BBC One this Christmas.
Zog is a loveable, if somewhat clumsy dragon at Dragon School who is always striving to win a golden star. Zog is learning lots of essential dragon skills at school including flying, roaring, breathing fire and capturing princesses! Forestry Commission England are now inviting children to step into the forest classroom to learn lessons just like Zog, including how animals fly, what sounds they make and how they catch their prey!
We love Zog and we do like a good trail, so we’ll be heading there soon.
Apparently you can follow the trail markers through the woods to find familiar characters from the story and collect stars, plus the family day out is made even better with a Zog activity pack which will have a special lens inside which reveals hidden pictures along the trail, a booklet with fun activities, and a Zog mask to help make our day picture perfect. Activity packs are £3 from the information point.
