Bundled in hats and jackets children color paper animal clan masks at the Mission San Luis.
Blue jays, foxes, and panthers are just a few of the creatures that came alive.
The animals represents the different clans of the mission.
A day of fun for the kids, but parents say they also walk away with a bit of a history lesson.
Lisa Litteral brought her two children to the mission and says, "You know I don't think they'll understand truly the historical part of it. I think it will make quite an impression to just have seen all these buildings, they have reconstructed".
The event is free, and the Mission plans on continuing the activity along with others such as jewelry making.
