Virtual Family Game Night

About this Event

While the Lincoln family didn't use computers or the internet to connect, they did enjoy spending time together at the Cottage playing games.

Join President Lincoln's Cottage and Game Genius for our 2nd virtual community game night to play together in creative ways! Be ready on Tuesday, March 24th at 7 pm EST with your imagination and these items: a cup, 2 coins, 2 pens, and a book. Together, we'll turn these Lincoln-related objects into games that spark brave ideas.

Note: This program is suitable for children 5 years old and older.

President Lincoln's Cottage is pleased to partner with Game Genius to offer this virtual program to further our mission while we are closed to the public.
