Super stuff to do with the kids this winter!
We can’t wait for all of the family events we will host at One Colorado this coming year! It’s going to be a very fun and crafty year. Until then, we created an itinerary of kids’ activities and classes that you can start today.
On January 19th, The Huntington Gardens will be hosting an interactive Family Music Performance that connects music to the sights and sounds of their gorgeous grounds. ($15).
Join Kidspace Museum all MLK weekend long from January 19-21st. Enjoy dance and cultural presentations, and honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King by learning the many ways you can volunteer in your community.
The Armory holds creative classes throughout the year. Beginning January 19th, they will hold three-month art classes such as Monster Destruction, where you can create and build creatures or monsters, the small cities they live in and then film all the destruction they cause to your mini city, just like Godzilla!

On January 26th, let your creative juices flow at the Norton Simon Museum, where as a family you can create a modern version of the Renaissance flag fan, drawing inspiration from Titian’s Lady in White. Then, on March 9th, collaborate with other families to create a diorama around a story from Rousseau’s Exotic Landscape.
