For kids, we have created a special Pasaporte for use along the History Trail. The Pasaporte was designed several years ago by Thelma Ortiz Muraida. Pick up a Pasaporte at the Explorer's HideAway tent then visit the History Trail where you will learn about various topics important to the establishment and growth of San Antonio. Once you have finished the History Trail and have collected all of your stamps, go back to the Explorer’s Hideaway. There you will receive a very special gift and memento of San Antonio Founders Day!
There are activities for all ages at San Antonio Founders Day! In addition to the History Trail for the older kids, younger ones can participate in several different craft activities.
Here's what you can do:
• Create a “God’s Eye.” This simple weaving is done with two craft sticks and yarn. Traditionally, this weaving is done by a father on the birth of a child and uses red, yellow, blue, brown, green and black yarn.
• Create a collage representing San Antonio’s heritage using die cuts and stickers.
• Learn about the branding of cattle using stamps and paint.
Look for us under the Explorers' Hideaway Banner!
These youngsters work with a History Trail volunteer to document their
Pasaportes during Founders Day, 2011.
