Two Card Games in Spanish for Kids {Printable Game}

In our family, card games and language go together. Whether we are playing escala cuarenta in Peru or cribbage in Wisconsin, there is constant banter and conversation. When my kids were little, simple card games often led to delightful interactions. Now that they are older, I appreciate the language and social skills they learned from the games. Children of any age can play Batalla de Velocidades and Batalla de Tamaños. They are based on the traditional game La guerra (War)Read More ...
