Top Five Winter Classics

Top Five Winter Classics


Embrace the cold weather this winter by joining us at the Rainbow Factory to warm up and celebrate the season. Come and explore some of our favourite winter stories through interactive theatre, craft, games, song and sensory play!

Stories include the Gruffalo's Child, Bear Snores On and the Snow Queen.

Friday 25th Feb - Bear Snores On 
Join Bear as he joins us to tell his wonderful story of how he met his friends through a theatrical, interactive telling of the story with the help of the children followed by activities including hunting through the woodlands to find all the missing animals, making a delicious bear paw biscuit, and crafting a mini bear cave, bear masks and mini puppets to retell the story with at home plus much more!

Friday 1st Feb - Snow Queen (Frozen Special)
The children will get to enjoy an interactive telling of the Snow Queen where they will get to embark on the adventure as well through theatre and imaginative play. Then they will get to go on an obstacle course to the Queen's Castle and on a treasure hunt to find the Queen's ice shards, play games to overcome the challenges the characters face and will get to create a variety of wintery crafts!

Friday 8th Feb - Elmer in the Snow
Join our Elephant Expert as they tell the story of when Elmer showed his friends the snow - this interactive, theatrical storytelling will get the children engaged in the story from the get-go. Once the story is over, the children will get to immerse themselves even more in the story as they get to enjoy crafts and snow themed messy play with things such as no freeze snow, salt dough snowballs, a chance to create their own snow puffy painting. PLUS have an indoor snowball fight and play wintery games in the 'snow' and sneak through our obstacle course up the mountain where you can look out for elephant footprints!

Friday 15th Feb - The Gruffalo's Child
Join the Gruffalo's Child as they take the children on an adventure into their story. Starting with an interactive story where the children will get to go on the adventure with the Gruffalo's Child and meet all the animals. This will be followed by even more exciting activities, such as searching through the Woodlands for the Big Bad Mouse and the animals, parachute games and fun, and fantastic crafts such as Gruffalo, mouse & fox masks, paper plate snakes, edible mud, salt dough and much more!
