Track and Trail teaches you a series of signs that you can use to lay and follow trails.
Track and Trail
Learn the signs for laying a trail and then set one up for others to follow. If someone sets one for you, can you follow it? Once you have learnt the basic signs, you could make some up of your own – what dangers or obstacles might you want to warn people about? Are there other materials in your landscape that you could use to form your signs? How long will your trail survive before someone knocks an arrow or brushes past a leaf? Are there ways you can protect against your trail getting damaged as people follow your directions?
If you can’t get outside, you can lay a trail at home. What could you use instead of sticks and stones to form the signs for your trail? Where might you lead someone through your home? Maybe you could hide a snack at the end in the kitchen!
Post some photos of your trail and any inventive signs you’ve made up on social media with the hashtag #DreamBigAtHome.
