No school holiday is complete without a trip to Haldon Forest Park and this Easter, families can join Zog the dragon on a magical activity trail adventure.

Forestry England’s latest partnership with Magic Light Pictures has brought everyone’s favourite dragon – based on the eponymous book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler – back to the forest. The family activity trail and a free interactive app, developed by Arcade, encourage your little dragons to learn about how they can care for the forest and how the forests can care for them!

Zog is a loveable, if somewhat clumsy dragon at Madam Dragon’s school who is always striving to win a golden star. Zog learns lots of essential dragon skills including flying, roaring, and capturing princesses! Haldon Forest Park is the perfect setting for children to learn essential lessons just like Zog.

Connecting with nature is essential for children’s wellbeing and the new interactive family trail and app invites children to play in Haldon Forest Park. Whilst playing, children will find out more about forests and have the chance to interact with Zog and some of his fellow dragon students!

Grab a Zog trail activity pack from the Info Pod for only £4 before starting the trail for lots of fun things to do on your forest adventure. Children can channel their inner Zog by donning a pair of wings and completing fun challenges to collect golden stars. They can also pop on the magic glasses to look for hidden letters along the way to solve a word puzzle. When reaching the end of the trail, they complete a crayon rubbing to get their certificate and take a selfie with Zog! The activity trail is 1.5 miles long, suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs, with seating available along the route.

To complement the trail and to take your dragon training to the next level, download the free augmented reality app, ‘Zog: A Forest Adventure’. The app has lots of bonus activities to complete including a roar-ometer, a dance challenge and the chance to become Zog.
