Step into the Story Online

We are feeling festive here at the Vale and Downland Museum, so to celebrate, we have taken our popular Step into the Story sessions online! Join us as we share Zoe’s Christmas List, the wonderful picture book by Chloe and Mick Inkpen.
We always end our Step into the Story sessions with a craft activity, and this hasn’t changed with our move online! Use the link below to access a template for your very own Little Bear finger puppet to make and play with at home.
