On the site you will find downloadable Poppy Cat activity materials focusing on ‘Mystery Trail Adventures’, created to engage children aged 2-6 years during family outings to the woods. VisitWoods hosts information on over 11,000 UK woods that are open to the public.
Speaking on behalf of the Woodland Trust, Simone Ashley-Norman, said:
"You are never too young to visit a wood and our partnership with Poppy Cat will enable families across the country to get outdoors this spring and make the most of our beautiful native woodlands. VisitWoods makes finding and visiting woods as straightforward as possible, for all ages and abilities, so there’s no excuse to stay indoors!"
Michael Dee, director of content at Coolabi, the producers of Poppy Cat, added:
"Poppy Cat is an adventurer who is often embarking on journeys to the woods with her friends. This provides a natural link to VisitWoods and we are pleased to partner with the Woodland Trust to provide exciting content for children and families to make their everyday adventures extraordinary!”
To support the partnership, Nick Jr. will be airing nature-themed Poppy Cat episodes daily. There will also be campaign content at nickjr.co.uk, alongside Poppy Cat clips, games and activities.
We have been sent some great activities and accessories to help us join in with the Poppy Cat fun, here's Sophia modelling our new Poppy Cat backpack, promptly filled by her sister!
