At Home Activities: Inspired by Nature

Since we are unable to host Museums of the Arroyo (MOTA) Day this year, we compiled these nature-inspired activities for some at home fun along with a photo slideshow of historic images of the Arroyo. Please share pictures of your crafts and drawings on social media.

Oak Tree Craft with Art2Go

Watch the video and/or view the pdf with oak tree craft instructions.

Orange Tree Coloring pages

Click on the images to go to the larger pdfs for download.

Flower drawing tutorials

Check out Art For Kids Hub's playlist, How to Draw and Make Flowers.

We think these tutorials would work well for drawing flowers on paper or for creating sidewalk chalk art.

Celebrating the Arroyo

These historic photos of the Arroyo Seco from the PMH Archives were selected by Brad Macneil, Director of Education and Public Programming & curator of Starting Anew: Transforming Pasadena: 1890-1930.
