Little Monsters, Big Impressions – Cancelled

26 October 2023, 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Unfortunately, we’ve had to cancel this session due to staffing availability. We’re really sorry! We hope to see you at another event really soon – check out our ‘What’s On’ page for more details!

Join us for a ghoulishly good time filled with spooky fun and creative activities. It’s Halloween, and we’re ready to BOO-gie! We will be making Halloween-themed Crafts, and having a spooky Storytime, costumes are very welcome! Pre-booking is required. 

What to Expect:

Halloween Crafts: Let your little ones’ creativity run wild with stickers, pom-poms, tissue paper, sequins, and other spooky craft supplies.

Spooky Storytime: Gather ’round as we share eerie tales and mysterious stories.

Costumes Welcome: Dress up in your spookiest, silliest, or most enchanting costumes – the more creative, the better!

Heritage Toys: Discover a delightful collection of heritage toys for your little ones to play with, creating nostalgic moments and opportunities to reminisce over toys you may have enjoyed as a child!

Pre-booking is required to secure your spot!

While your little ones explore, play, and create, you can mingle with other parents and caregivers over a cup of tea or coffee, with delicious biscuits.

This is a free-roam play session, allowing you and your little ones to move freely through the room, exploring crafts, toys, and musical instruments at your own pace.

After our spellbinding playgroup, continue the adventure by visiting the Museum for free, with exciting trails designed to enchant your little ones!
