The River & Rowing Museum bounced into the summer spirit at Peter Rabbit’s Holiday Hop on Thursday 27th July. In addition to the array of displays and exhibitions on show, visitors could get stuck into a number of Peter Rabbit themed activities. The event was yet another example of the fantastic family days organised by the museum, always extremely popular with parents and children alike.
There was plenty of Peter Rabbit themed excitement to be had in the Thames Room, where children could get creative with crafts. All with a Beatrix Potter inspired twist, budding artists could colour and construct their own watering cans, pom pom bunnies, vegetable patch mobiles, and rabbit finger puppets. Playtime was similarly on theme with Peter Rabbit Snakes and Ladders, and an entire play area dedicated to Beatrix Potter’s creations. Children could dress up as a number of her most famous creatures, plant carrots in the pretend garden, or relax and watch Peter Rabbit on screen.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a family day without a visit from Mr Toad! The Thames Room was packed full of little listeners for Mr Toad and Mrs McGregor’s Story Telling, where the characters narrated the Tale of Peter Rabbit and the Flopsy Bunnies. Everyone had chance to join in with songs led by Mrs McGregor and her tambourine, and a lucky few even got to help act out with the story!
Peter Rabbit and the River and Rowing Museum kicked off the summer holidays with a bang, once again providing fun for all the family — you’d have been hopping mad to miss it!
