The Story Bus is a wonderful concept that allows children to take a trip – literally – into the story. The team at Abracadabra believe that each child is unique and use an integrative learning cycle to bring out the best and to recognise and nurture the talent, creativity and imagination in each child.
The Story Bus, which leaves from either Dublin, Galway or Cork takes children and their parents on an interesting, four hour interactive journey that is fun and assures quality time spent with one another. Parents can sit back and enjoy the fun, the interaction and games without having to drive and children get thoroughly absorbed in learning through fun both on the trip and at the venue.
The next Story Bus is departing from St Patricks Quay in Cork on Sunday the 9th August from 2 – 6pm and will take you on a Magical Fairy Adventure to Glenview Gardens in Enniskeane. The journey promises to be a fun-filled trip with live entertainment, story telling, singing and much more. For more information visit their booking page.
