Then just let the day unfold whilst you enjoy all the fun! For those not quite ready for an OS map (age 5-6?), we include picture clues. Ideal for birthday parties! Bring your bunting and cake and have an outdoor party to finish the day with. (Please note, restrictions apply during the Covid-19 pandemic)
