In our bilingual journey we know that the best way to expose our kids to Spanish is to make it immersive and fun . That’s why this week’s activity round-up is dedicated to encouraging our kids to practice speaking Spanish and, of course, have lots of fun! The activities were created by bloggers who are also on a journey to raise bilingual and bicultural kids and have found a few tips and tricks along the way.
