Add a Sticker Librito {Printable Activity}

My kids loved libritos when they were small. The little pages were the right size for their hands and they would color the books just the way they wanted. My students like making mini-books too, especially one I think of as the “add-a-sticker” librito. These books have an object or simple background on each page as a setting. Children use identical stickers to add a “character” and create a wordless book. Then they can tell their story. This is aRead More ...

Botero Inspired Escultura De La Primavera {Activity}

On el 19 de abril, Colombian artist, Fernando Botero cumple 80 años. I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to incorporate a little bit of cultura into one of our almost daily activities–playing with plastilina.   Inspired by Botero’s esculturas, we set out to make our own escultura from plastilina and spring chécheres. First we talked briefly about Botero.  If Sofía were growing up in Colombia, by now she would know who Botero was because she would be surrounded by his works of art and hear his name everywhere.  So we lookedRead More ...

Amiguitos Conejitos: Cascarones With A Modern Twist

Cascarones have always been a big tradition and staple of fun when it came to celebrating Easter as a child in my Mexican family. When a confetti egg is broken over your head it is a sign of good luck. While cascarones are normally filled with confetti, flour, and other messy ingredients, I decided this year the kids could make them a little different. We created  little bunny eggs  for each of us. This will take cracking them open to another level. Instead of just confetti,Read More ...

Slimy and Sensacional Espaguetis Sensory Tub {Activity}

We are big fans of sensory tub experiences at our casa.  I like the combination of science, sensory, discovery, and play they provide.  We usually do a rice or fríjol tub and often a water bin.  But Saturday morning after breakfast, I decided that I needed to spice things up a bit.  Lately mi hija, Sofía, has been particularly fond of observing and discovering las lombrices, so I went with that thought in mind and created an Espaguetis Sensory Tub.  The results were fantástico!  Sofía thoroughly enjoyedRead More ...

Story Stones To Create and Inspire {Printable Activity}

Érase una vez…Once upon a time there were… three children who loved to hear stories. And so, like millions of parents around the world, I told story after story, and soon the three children began to tell stories, too. Stories are an integral part of childhood and language development. Story stones are a wonderful way to help children begin to tell stories in Spanish. The stones are colorful and fun to hold and arrange. This is important because children learnRead More ...

De Colores Hand Kites

It’s officially spring!!! The weather has been gorgeous in Jersey and the kiddos have been so excited to play outside. Since my little ones are too young to really fly an actual kite, I thought it would be fun to make our own Hand Kites. As colorful as the kites turned out, it was only right to take this chance to teach them one of my favorite songs: De Colores. I used to sing this all the time with myRead More ...
