Roald Dahl’s Propsposterous Playtime
Explore your favourite Dahl characters and plots through crazy and creative hands-on activities and exhibits at Roald Dahl’s Propsposterous Playtime at Playeum’s Children’s Centre for Creativity. A delightful (and delicious!) Dahl extravaganza, this literary feast will capture the imagination of all children aged 3 – 12 and their parents!
For this one day, the new hands-on exhibition at the Children’s Centre for Creativity, ‘A World Full of Stories’, will be transformed into an homage for Dahl’s crazy words, characters, plots and settings. Choose your favourite character and make a puppet, add Dahl detail to the Chalk Wall, pick out Dahl’s wonderful made-up words to create your own poem, and add new mixed up words to the fun. Use favourite characters to make new stories, or enact the ones you already know and love.
