Funday at Glensheen

Glensheen Sunday Funday Mom, daughter, and volunteer
June 6, 2018

Glensheen has kicked off a new programing series for children called “Sunday Funday.”

The series offers parents and their young children, ages 4 to 8, the chance to learn and be engaged with art, history, and fun. Every Sunday, there will be a new kid-friendly project related to the month's theme. 

In June, the event series will explore the influences Japanese and Chinese cultures had on the Congdons. Guests can see many of these influences around Glensheen in the artwork, furniture and design. On June 10, children will create paper fans. On June 17, kids will work together to create/decorate an old-style Asian privacy screen. On June 24, children will create Chinese lanterns.

“This is a great step for Glensheen as it adds programming focused specifically for kids for the first time in recent history. We’ve been looking for more ways to engage children with things like our ‘Scavenger Hunt’ book and self-guided tours,” explains Glensheen Director Daniel Hartman.

Adults must be accompanied by a child. No ticket is required for this free event; however, an RSVP is required via the Glensheen website https://glensheen.org/calendar/category/community/. The event is limited to the first 20 participants.

Guests are encouraged but not required to take a tour in order to attend the event. For Glensheen tour times and pricing, please visit https://glensheen.org/
