Free Family Activities at the San Dieguito Heritage Museum Every Saturday and Sunday.   Noon to 4pm - FREE!

In the weekly Families Making History Together program for February at the Museum, we will be creating mosaic art. This activity is a great way to teach children how to stay busy and occupied using things Bean Mosaic from nature. Beans plays a central role in the history of Encinitas, and many of the first families to arrive here were following dreams of agriculture.

Come on down and learn more about our history while letting your inner bean-tastic artist free!

The San Dieguito Heritage Museum will continue to offer free history activities for families on Saturdays and Sundays. Each weekend, there will be free hands-on experiences that highlight a certain era of San Dieguito history. These activities will change monthly. The historic eras and corresponding activities may include:

  • * Native American period: Sand painting and acorn grinding
  • * Rancho Period: adobe brick making, cattle roping and soap making
  • * Pioneer Days: butter making, washboard clothes washing and quilt making
  • * Flower Growing Period: seed planting, plant identification and plant dyeing
  • * Surfing and Concern for Ocean Ecology: balsa mini-surfboard shaping, kelp cookie making and ocean awareness experiences

The Museum's exhibits will also be open during the activity times with docents to guide you through the history of San Dieguito. With these new intergenerational activities, families in the Sandieguito area will come to understand they can visit the Musuem on any weekend and know that new and interesting experiences await.
