7 engaging activities with Kids in Spain

We just finished a month in Toledo, Spain.  Traveling with kids is wonderful and challenging. We didn’t try to cover the entire country but what we did cover, we think is worth sharing,

Here is our scoop….

We took 2 quick trips; one to Grenada and one to Barcelona, and a day trip to Valencia to get a taste for some of Spain’s offerings.

Here’s a roundup of what we did:

  1.  Grenada – we visited the AlhambraIMG_5586and then… spent some time at the beachimg_0822

    Spain is great for Churros, don’t forget about the Porrasimg_0733image

  2. Cathedral in Toledo

    National pride was strong while Catalan stressed the national unity.


  3. Greco Museum in Toledo
  4. The Prado in Madrid see how we attempted to teach our kids something about art on our visit HERE.img_0966img_0969
  5. Valencia Spain has an incredible aquarium that our boys loved!  We were there in November and it wasn’t crowded at all.img_0866img_5728
  6. In Barcelona we learned about Dali and Gaudi.  La Segrada Familia was incredible and we would go back in a heartbeat.  The Dali Museum did not disappoint, but please know that this is not directly in Barcelona.  It is about an hour and a half or so away.  All in, we loved Barcelona and wished we could have spent more time there.

    Dali is sooo cool



    The coolest church I have ever been in. Period. Period.

  7. Zoo in Madrid was a hit and in November there wasn’t much of a crowd at all.

    The Madrid Zoo was really a nice zoo


    All in, we loved Spain and will miss it, but alas….all roads lead to Rome.  So next up on our journey is the Eternal City!

  1. What a great and wonderful thing to do with your family. I’ve seen photos of La Alhambra in classes I took and I’m very excited that you visited! We’ll have to get together post-trip and your family can fill me and my family in on the details. We expect a full tour 🙂 I’m pretty sure that you’ll need a projector and a screen.
