Sunday Funday: Pop-Up Valentine’s Day Cards

February 14 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Sunday Funday is back! One Sunday of the month, the Neill-Cochran House Museum opens its doors to feature hands-on activities and space to enjoy lunch in the shade. Though this version will be more sanitized and socially-distant than previous iterations, we hope you and your family take the opportunity to come out and do some crafts with us.

Long before one could pick up a tablet and conjure a streaming video at the touch of a finger, the pop-up book was a popular sensation, engaging the imagination in a way that flat images and text never could. By designing and building our own pop-ups, we’ll get to think a little bit about the know-how it took to bring these familiar childhood books into our homes and lives – and create something for your valentine, too!

We’ll have examples of a different ways of creating a pop-up image along with all the materials and decorating supplies you’ll need. Staff and volunteers will be available to help with designs and pop-up card making, and we’ll also have pre-made pop-ups that younger kids (or anyone so inclined!) can decorate.

Pop on by!

Our monthly Sunday Funday series is free with the price of museum admission. This is a drop-in event; it is not necessary to arrive at 1:00pm nor stay until 4:00pm to enjoy the activity. Because this workshop involves paints and markers, we recommend wearing clothing that won’t mind a few stains and blotches. The Neill-Cochran House Museum is happy to provide free parking for our guests. For more information, please visit us at https://www.nchmuseum.org/.
