Who doesn’t love a good field trip? Mission San Juan Capistrano is chock full of history that’s appropriate for kids of all ages. Create a “mission scavenger hunt” for kids to hunt for historic artifacts, bring your sketch pads and sketch the beautiful scene behind the ancient alter in the chapel in pastels or color pencils. This mission is exceptional for many reasons but one is that the Swallows come each year to nest at the mission, check out the website for many bird facts including classifications. And what about creating a week long unit study on the mission before you visit it? Be sure to bring your lunch and enjoy a picnic outdoors after your tour. San Juan Capistrano is also home to the train depot which will take you up and down the coast to San Diego and back, should you choose to make an all-day event out of. Whatever you choose to do, go see the Mission! Sign up NOW to secure your spot.
