Just in time for spring, Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site is offering an exciting afternoon of free, good old-fashioned fun for children at Creation Station: Lovely Lavender. This drop-in, historically-themed craft workshop will be on Saturday, March 5th from 1-4pm and is perfect for children ages 5-11. Creation Station workshops are held rain or shine.
“Lovely Lavender” welcomes and celebrates the new spring season! Activities will include candle-making, lavender-scented sachets, and a colorful craft inspired by Victorian Easter traditions. In addition to participating in these hands-on activities, visitors can choose to take a free house tour between 1 and 5pm, or a garden tour at 2:30pm.
Mark your calendars! Creation Station continues on the first Saturday in April with “Cool Blues”.
About the Rancho:
Built in 1844, the adobe home and grounds of Rancho Los Cerritos echo with the rich history of Spanish, Mexican, and American California and with the families who helped transform Southern California from its ranching beginnings to a modern, urban society. The two-story Monterey-style adobe is primarily furnished to reflect occupants and lifestyles from the 1860s-1880s. The site, a National, State and Long Beach Historic Landmark, also includes historic gardens and a research library and archives. It is operated by the Rancho Los Cerritos Foundation in a public/private partnership with the City of Long Beach.
