Explore your way! We have a number of sensory backpack and explorer kits available for you to borrow.
Explore the Museum galleries with our sensory backpack and find out about the special animals in Roald Dahl’s life and his stories. The backpack activities can be done during your time in the galleries and can be self-led or facilitated by a Session Leader. If you would like the activates facilitated, please indicate this at the time of booking.
With the backpack, your group can:
- use a spotter challenge to discover animals that inspired characters in Roald Dahl’s books
- play a dice game and make animal movements or sounds
- explore different animal-themed textural materials
- experiment with mark making to draw pathways, tunnels or dens for animals
- take away a beautiful activity sheet to complete at school or home
