Park Ranger helps kids build a paper version of the Lincoln Home
Complete Lincoln Home's youth activities to be a Junior Ranger.



Become a Junior Ranger!

Become a Lincoln Home Junior Ranger by taking a virtual trip back in time to explore the life of Abraham Lincoln in Springfield, Illinois. Here’s how you can begin you journey to become a Lincoln Home Junior Ranger:

1) Download a free digital copy of our activity book.

2) How well do you know Abraham Lincoln? What is your favorite version of Abraham Lincoln? Beard? No Beard? Let us know by testing out your drawing skills with our new “Draw Lincoln” challenge! Share on your social media and tag us using @lincolnhomenhs and #DrawLincolnChallenge.

3) Take a virtual tour of the Lincoln Home and of the historic neighborhood where Abraham Lincoln and his family lived for 17 years.

To obtain your badge, send us an email with your address and a note telling us about your favorite Junior Ranger activity! We will send out Junior Ranger badges when park facilities re-open.

Have Fun!
