Creation Station: Sunny Yellow Offers an Afternoon of Old-Fashioned Fun at Rancho Los Cerritos
2016-04-27 · By Editor
Rancho Los Cerritos Historic Site is offering an exciting afternoon of free, good old-fashioned fun for children at Creation Station: Sunny Yellow. This drop-in, historically-themed craft workshop will be on Saturday, May 7th from 1-4pm and is perfect for children ages 5-11. Creation Station workshops are held rain or shine.
What better way to enjoy the warm weather and sunshine than by planting some sunflowers or making some seashell frames? Other “Sunny Yellow” activities will include decorating the sunflower pots and making a traditional Mexican craft called Ojos de Dios. 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 June with “Rainbow Surprise”.
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.
