Story Sacks

Former administrator Vicky Edwards, along with our very talented craft group have devised a collection of story sacks for our young visitors and their families to use.

What is a story sack?

A Story Sack is a large cloth bag containing a children’s book/nursery rhyme and various supporting materials, such as role play characters, puzzles, activity suggestions, etc.

The Nantwich Museum story sacks contain stories/rhymes that can be related to the history of Nantwich.

By using the book and supporting materials together you can help to stimulate language and create an enjoyable and memorable reading experience for you and your child, as well as developing your child’s understanding of the history of our wonderful town.

At the moment we have four sacks for you to enjoy:

  • London’s Burning
  • The Grand Old Duke of York
  • Hickory Dickory Dock
  • The Elves and the Shoemaker
