Destination: Hogwarts

Do you know your kneazles from your knarls? Your patronuses from your pensieves? Do you always say levi-O-sa, instead of levio-SA? If so, get yourself to Platform 9 3/4, hop onboard the Hogwarts Express and join us for a day dedicated to the magical world of Harry Potter!
Destination: Matilda’s Buckinghamshire
Roald Dahl’s Matilda is our kind of person - a voracious reader. an inventive prankster, and a champion for what’s right. And that’s not even touching on her telekinesis! As we journey into her world, we’ll celebrate the book nerd in all of us, making a series of bookish crafts, including a book bag, a book pendant necklace and a one-of-a-kind bookmark.
Destination: Jumanji (and other Chris Van Allsburg worlds)
During this day, we’ll share some of our favourite Chis Van Allsburg classics, including The Sweetest Fig, The Wreck of the Zephyr, The Stranger and Jumanji. Using this final book as our inspiration, we’ll create our own board games, designing everything from game boards to cards, player pieces to dice.
Destination: Swan Lake
March 16, 2017

Destination: Swan Lake

Can’t get enough Chris Van Allsburg? Neither can we. On this day, we’ll share his stunning illustrations of Tchaikovsky’s ballet, Swan Lake and use them as inspiration for our own acrylic paintings on canvas board.
Destination: The Beast’s Castle
Before going to see the new live version of Beauty and the Beast, be our guest for a day at the Lyceum as we look at the many ways this classic fairy tale has been portrayed over the years and create a series of rose-themed crafts in a variety of media.
Destination: A Land Faraway
Once upon a time, a group of adventurous young readers ventured to the Lyceum for a day devoted to Grimm’s Fairy Tales. They basked in these stories of princesses and knights, wolves and witches — the sorts of tales that can be told again and again and never get old.
Destination: The Isle of Berk
If you, like many young adventurers, would like to become well-versed in the art of dragon training, we invite you to this practical, hands-on Dragon Initiation Program.
Destination: The Fairy Kingdom
The eighth day of our literary journey takes us close to home, as we explore one the Lyceum’s own treasures — its richly storied fairy garden.

Destination: Victoria’s Camp! A Journey with Edward Tulane
