Half term is nearing and hurrah for Tall Stories who are re-imagining their brilliant stage show, The Snail and the Whale for a virtual tour. Livestream the performance from home and settle in for music, storytelling and audience interaction for ages 4+. The show will be streamed from Tall Stories’ HQ in Islington but via regional theatres around the UK – in London it has partnered with The Pleasance and runs on 26 October at 11am. For more Julia Donaldson – Axel Scheffler fun, there’s the Gruffalo Adventure Trail around the arboretum at Kew Gardens. Spot characters from the story including fox, owl, snake and look for their burrows in the natural habitat. Open 17 October – 1 November, timed booking essential. For older children, the Postal Museum is re-opening its doors on 29 October and their exhibition on The Great Train Robbery has been extended until December. And to encourage more play outdoors in the garden we recommend The Den Kit Co. There are lots of fun activity sets like Make a Pizza for the Birds, Portable Potions and Entomology kits as well as more traditional Den Kits with everything you need to build a shelter amongst the trees.
