LEGO trail at Wildfowl and Wetland Trust

LEGO trail at Wildfowl and Wetland Trust

A couple of weeks ago we went to Washington Wetlands to see the Lego brick animals and a run around outside. I’ve realised that 1. people are pretty interested in the LEGO models and 2. I should’ve written about it before now because 3. the LEGO brick animals have already left Washington on their tour of the country. Sorry, local peeps (though this might help you if you’re going on holiday over the summer.

The trail is spread around the grounds, many of the models inside the enclosures with the animals they are based on. We had a map to help us find each of the brick animals. At Washington there was also a quiz, so you could find each model then match the build times to each of the names on the sheet.

We love the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust centre near us. It is a fantastic place for a run around. The scenery is so beautiful. In the winter there are some pretty impressive puddles, so it’s worth going just for those (and the puddle jumping championships are held annually).

We also really love the play area, because there are lots of different areas to explore, and things to do and think about, not just climb, slide, repeat (though you can do that too!).

The LEGO brick trail is on tour over the summer months. You can see the LEGO brick animals at Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust centres around the country:

    This looks like a fab place to explore, Wetlands Centre’s are always a wonderful place to explore with littlies. I always love seeing the photos of these giant Lego statues would love to see one in person, I bet they’re so impressive. It looks like there’s plenty of activities to help kids enjoy their day even if the Lego statues weren’t there too.

    Thanks for sharing with me over on #CountryKids.

      The LEGO structures are so impressive in person. It’s just astonishing and the amount of time, planning, and care that must go into them is really clear. I love them, and the boys thought they were fab.
