Looking for something free, fun and safe to do this Halloween? The team at York Mumbler have created a spooky Goblin trail at Rowntree Park with things to spot and quiz questions to answer along the way.
Halloween is going to be even more fun this year with York Mumbler. The team have created a fun, free Goblin trail at Rowntree Park for families in York this October half term.
Once upon a time a smelly, green Goblin was walking through the forest. A pine cone fell on his head and knocked him out. When he woke up he couldn’t remember his name.A friendly, purple and orange beetle scurried up to him to ask if he was ok?
‘No’, said the Goblin, ‘I’ve lost my name’.
‘Well’, said the beetle, ‘why don’t you go and find your friends hidden in this wood, they might be able to give you some clues’.
Can you help the smelly, green Goblin find his 10 friends to help him remember his name?
With things to spot and quiz questions to answer along the way this free, safe trail is ideal for families looking for something a bit different this October Half Term. Developed with Holly at Yorkshire Brand Stories, we have created a series of spooky themed Goblin houses for children to spot and collect clues to complete the trail. The original Goblin houses have been constructed by Holly’s mum and her friend using found materials and are brightly painted and decorated to stand out to children.
As well as the original trail at Rowntree Park, York Mumbler have created a free trail pack that local communities can access. Nurseries and community groups will be able to set up their own Goblin trail throughout October Half Term in parks, woods and green spaces to provide local families with a free, safe activity. To be involved get in touch with Holly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our sponsor for the trail, Little Green Rascals, will also be hosting the community trail within their organic day nurseries for their children to enjoy throughout half term.
