Christmas at the Museum of London

  • Category: Family Fun
  • Dates: Friday, 27 December 2013 to Sunday, 05 January 2014

Our capital is full of fun family events to do over the festive season, but how often do you find an activity that has been put on exclusively for those with under fives.

This year, the Museum of London will be bucking the trend, with a tremendous programme of Christmas excitement lined up for those with really young children.

The events are particularly great for those kiddies who experience the big day on December the 25th and don't want to let the magic go as they all take place between the 27th and January 5th.

If you want to encourage that arty streak in your little boy or girl, take them along to the craft workshops on December 27th. These sessions will teach them how to make their own special badges and brooches, as well as a special 'hiding box' to  keep them in.

The day is inspired by the Dickens classic A Christmas Carol, so be prepared to answer lots of questions about that nasty old Scrooge and his encounter with the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future.

A family-friendly production of the tale will even be shown at the Museum of London on December 31st and January 1st if you want to take the children along.

To give the little ones confidence when interacting with one another and coming up with ideas, take them along to a storytelling workshop, where they will be encouraged to invent their own fantasies in a safe and creative environment.

Finally, between January 2nd and 5th, there are a number of events going on each day which include making a family game based around finding treasure.

Ensure that the young ones have just as much fun in their accommodation by booking into The Rubens at the Palace, where they will have the opportunity to earn a special Masterchef certificate for cupcake decoration in the kitchen with the Families at the Rubens package.
