Kids enjoy old-fashioned arts and crafts at Long Beach Creation Station event

LONG BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- Dozens of kids showed up at Rancho Los Cerritos to explore their creative side. The Long Beach historic site held one of its Creation Station events.



Organizers said it's a chance for kids to unplug and enjoy some old-fashioned arts and crafts. The drop-in program takes place rain or shine.

Each month there is a colored theme. This month's theme was outrageous orange.

Besides crafts, old-fashioned children's games are also played. Many of the crafts have a tie to the history of Rancho Los Cerritos, like candle making.

The free event takes place the first Saturday of each month, October through June.
