This past Saturday was the Betty Brinn Children's Museum's annual "Valentine Ice Cream Social." We had tons of visitors who made tons of great Valentine cards for loved ones.

BAM space director Mike designed word blocks in Adobe Illustrator and laser cut the words into pink foam to make block prints. With the help of some wonderful volunteers and interns, children and adult visitors were able to make Valentine cards.

Blocks on blocks on blocks.
