The good old-fashioned crossword is usually an adult interest: something we might do while reading the morning paper or waiting in the airport. El crucigrama has gotten an update, though, and kids will love filling in the challenging puzzles on the new Spanish Crossword Puzzles for Kids app by Lyubov Zhivova.
