Are you looking for something to do with your little ones this weekend around Exeter in Devon? How about going Gruffalo Hunting at Haldon Forest?
Found just of the Devon Expressway, Haldon Forest is home to a number of activities (walkers will get use to avoiding the cyclists and Segways), and with the use of the Gruffalo Spotter app, you can now go a hunt the beast for yourself.
By loading up the Gruffalo Spotter app on your phone, and following the Discovery Trail, you can point your phone at special signs on route that will play a quick video clip on your phone, which appears to be taking place right in front of you. (Think something like “Pokemon Go”).
It added something different to our walk around, but our four year olds imagination was already fired up by the idea of looking for the Gruffalo and assorted friends.
To give you a flavour of what to expect, here are some photos from our explore around the imaginative world of Haldon Forest.
Yes that is also Stick Man above…

Its a little complicated, and not a short story, but we brought a new bike from Halfords for the Little One today.
After the fun of choosing, racing around the store, and walking out Halfords with the new bike, we took it for a test drive down on the Exeter Canal. Double Locks was the obvious place for a
cider break rest place.

Working weekends at our place means your weekend is split in two. (Which can sometimes work well). This week, it meant that we got to go on a family shopping trip into Exeter City Centre, during which we stopped for a moment in the Cathedral Green. Where I felt the Exeter Cathedral had a particularly Hogwarts style vibe going on?
