Toddler Takeover sessions: Creature Capers

Come and join us at one of our Toddler Takeovers sessions and have fun with animal-themed activities specially for the under 5s. 

You can now choose between a morning or an afternoon session. We will be opening at 9am so that each session will be three-hours long, giving you plenty of time to pop on your deely boppers and explore.

The exhibition floor will be closed between sessions (12-1pm) while we do a bit of a tidy up and restock the Kitchen ready for the next influx of little ones.


Creature Capers - what's on

At our January sessions, little people will be able to:

  • Create brightly coloured animal accessories to wear home
  • Take a twirl at the Beautiful Bug Ball
  • Squish and shape a sushi roll (or animal!) in the Kitchen 
  • Join Ursa and Leo for Home, Sweet, Home storytime.
  • Discover over 200 hands-on exhibits without the bigger kids around (not counting the parents, that is!).
