The Giant Wiggle is a sponsored walk for children under and around the age of 5 years old. Anyone can hold their own Giant Wiggle event; nurseries, children's centres, playgroups, childminders, families and friends.

The 2015 Giant Wiggle took place on March 19th. Over 54,000 children were registered to take part across the UK. As well as sponsored walks, many of the wiggles incorporated storytellimg. arts, crafts, nature trails and healthy eating - all aspects of this much loved children's book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
