Pop-Up Family Fun Events

Simple, safe hands-on fun… for your school, in your neighborhood or at your business!

"Edu-taining" events that help kids connect to the world around them.

This year especially, we crave safe ways to have fun and enjoy new experiences. Donna Griffin’s Pop-Up Family Fun events offer just this!

If you’re trying to plan something fun for kids in your life, consider a Pop-Up Family Fun Event. We show up with all the good stuff to keep the kids engaged and excited. (They’ll learn something too, but shhhh… don’t tell!) 

Pop-Up Events are a great way to create a unique hands-on learning event for your classroom, build awareness for your business, or to offer something special for your clients, HOA members, community members, etc. Also perfect for birthday parties and family reunions. All events are adapted to meet social distancing & health guidelines.
