National Building Museum

Family Afternoon: Pop Up Forts

Saturday, January 20, 2018
11:00 AM - 2:00 PM


Construct an awe-inspiring fort from newspapers. Find out how a triangle’s strong shape can brace your structure and keep your fort standing longer. Create tetrahedral caverns small enough for one or big enough for your entire clan. Little ones can explore how to build forts all year round, even in the cold winter months, during a story time with local Megan Wagner Lloyd. Enjoy a reading of her children's book, Fort Building Time, and then pick up your very own copy in the Museum Shop.
