Small Worlds at The Story Museum

Small Worlds at The Story Museum

Date of Adventure: 1 Feb, 2024

The Small Words sessions at The Story Museum is their magical early years offer. It’s especially designed for pre-school children and is so interactive and fun. The big airy room is split into 5 story themed zones and children explore each interactive zone with their grown ups and story cart which they push from zone to zone – it’s full of sensory delights to keep little hands busy as well as toys and props relating to each story theme.

Your little one can:

🐻Go on a Bear Hunt
🍥Discover Traction Man’s under-sink world
🌙Relax in the Night Safe,
🚌Ride on the Story Bus
🧙Enjoy Winnie and Wilbur’s miniature theatre

Sessions are structured, starting with a special song together at the beginning followed by the week’s featured story told by one of our Story Guides (an a HUGE bed) with lots of opportunities for joining in. Check this page out the website where all the stories are listed. Children and their grown-ups are then free to explore the five-story-themed zones for the rest of the session before a final story and goodbye song. Sessions also include a craft activity too and on Fridays this activity will be messy play so please dress accordingly!

The 14:15 session Tuesdays – Fridays during term time are just £3 per person.

Why not wonder up to Modern Art Oxford whilst you are there – it’s about 100m away on the same street – and check out their Creative Space!
