From me to you- A journey of a postcard

1st February 2021


‘From me to you,’ explores the journey of one little Bear’s postcard to his Granda Bear.

Join Museum Services on a postcard’s journey during our Playful Museum’s week running from Monday 15th – Saturday 20th February.

Inspired by postcards within our collection, as well as the great work of all our postal workers, the event is open to all children aged 1-5 years. It will be running virtually with a short animation (see below), online instruction videos and downloadable resource packs. Your child’s work will also feature in an exciting new exhibition!

Each day there will be craft instruction videos posted on the Ballymoney Facebook Page to help the child put together their crafts and games for the week. Within the packs, children will have the resources to create their own mailbag, postman hat, postcards, stamp, plane and posting games. Hard copies of these resource packs are available and can be posted out to you.

A major part of this project is around the creation of the child’s own portrait stamp and postcards. A stamped address envelope will be provided in the resource pack for the artwork to be returned to the Museum. We will collect the postcards and deliver to care homes within the Borough as a way of connecting generations and sharing creativity.

On return of your crafts each child will be rewarded with a certificate to thank them for all their hard work and for taking part in this year’s project.

If you would like to sign up to take part in this then please get in touch via Ballymoney Museum Facebook messenger or email cms@causewaycoastandglens.gov.uk.
