Welcome Tiny Tots! Join some of EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum’s famous characters in these monthly fun, interactive storytelling sessions. Suitable for ages 6 and under, each month we’ll take part in an original adventure tale composed by EPIC, including singing, drawing, mathematics and sensory exploration. All you need is your imagination to take part!
This month in honour of Space Week, climb aboard your rocket and leave the world behind in this galactic adventure. Meet astronauts Neil Armstrong and Eileen Collins, countdown to lift-off, star gaze, map out a new planet, and try out your spacewalk – all from the comfort of your home.
Delivered via Zoom, participants will need crayons and paper to take part as we bring the story to life at home with the help of our little ones! Afterwards, to replicate the usual Tiny Tots experience as much as possible, we’ll have some time for questions and chats.
Important: All children must be under a parent/ guardian’s supervision for the duration of the workshop. This session will be delivered remotely via Zoom. Please do not journey to EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum for this session.
