Holiday Family Day at the Spellman

Saturday, December 9, 2017

Children and adults can decorate Christmas tree ornaments and make holiday gifts with stamps from around the world. Visitors can do holiday stamp hunts and games, create their own holiday stamp designs, make stamp mosaics and see displays of Christmas stamps from the USA and worldwide. Volunteers will demonstrate how to make holiday cards and unique envelopes. Free postage using vintage Christmas stamps will be available to mail the cards. Children can write their letters to Santa Claus and post them in the Museum’s North Pole mailbox. A unique North Pole museum cancellation will be added to all letters and Santa has told the museum he will write back. Children can also have their picture taken and make it into a special postage stamp. Current US holiday stamps will be on sale in the Museum’s official Post Office and tips on how to start a stamp collection will be offered. Each child can make a free collection of holiday stamps to take home.
