Families Celebrate Black History with Pop-Ups


Sunday was a Family Day Celebration at the Smithsonian Institution’s Ripley Center. To celebrate Black History month, parents and kids were treated to a hall full of free activities, including theater performances, a jazz band, exhibits, and crafts. I worked with two wonderful volunteers, Robert and Ann, to teach kids how to make pop-ups illustrating their communities and families. We had lots of young paper engineers who participated and they took home their own pop-up designs.
