There’s lots of fun and games to be had in The Storybarn this month. Find out what’s happening each weekend of March:
FRIDAY 3 – SUNDAY 5 MARCH // CRAFTY CREATURES AND CRITTERS
A bear who’s lost his hat, a crocodile who doesn’t like water, and one very hungry little caterpillar…come along and meet some of our favourite creatures as we open up a treasure trove of tales all about things with tails (not to mention claws, beaks, wings and fur!) We’ll be getting creative with some critter-themed crafts, and don’t forget to dig out your mouse ears and join us in fancy dress – let’s create our very own Storybarn menagerie!
If you have a favourite cuddly toy creature who you think would enjoy a story or two, feel free to bring them along to join in the fun!
FRIDAY 10 – SUNDAY 12 MARCH // FAIRYTALES, MAGIC AND MYSTERIES
Let the Storybarn cast a spell on you this weekend as we wave our magic wand and conjure up a whole host of stories – perhaps a traditional favourite will appear out of the hat, or maybe we’ll be bewitched by a lesser known tale from another culture or era.
Some may be grim (or even Grimm!), cautionary or grisly – beware the peculiar creature Baba Yaga, and don’t venture too far into the woods in search of gingerbread houses. Some may warm our hearts and sprinkle some magic – keep your eyes peeled for elves with an eye for designing beautiful shoes, and bears with a great love of porridge.
Don your fairy wings, capes and crowns and join us as we share stories and create some magical masterpieces.
FRIDAY 17 – SUNDAY 19 MARCH // PIRATES AND UNDERWATER ADVENTURES
Dive into a fabulous Storybarn weekend as we embark on an exciting aquatic adventure. Whether you’re a fan of pirates and mermaids, or are intrigued by the mysterious world under the ocean, you’re guaranteed to open up a treasure trove of fun at The Storybarn this weekend. Grab your net and help us to fish out some favourite watery stories and fabulously fishy crafts!
FRIDAY 24 – SUNDAY 26 MARCH // MONSTERS, ALIENS AND WILDTHINGS
Join us for a weekend of space exploration and wild rumpuses as we step inside the pages of some truly out-this-world tales. We’ll be making our own monsters, dreaming up our own planets and maybe even going totally wild with a spot of alien dancing!
Don’t forget to come along dressed as the wildest being you can imagine, and see how many of our Storybarn monsters you can spot!
FRIDAY 31 – SUNDAY 2 APRIL // A RECIPE FOR FUN
Join us for a weekend full of foody themed fun! We’ll be meeting one very hungry little caterpillar, puzzling over whether we’d like ketchup on our cornflakes, and licking our lips with joy as we share a gorgeously gooey poem all about chocolate cake. We’ll be cooking up a crafting storm getting busy decorating our very own collage cupcakes, as well as a whole host of other culinary-themed crafts. Pop your apron on and come and join us as we stir up a recipe for fun in The Storybarn!
