5 Spanglish Summer Reads for Young Children

As the daughters of two writers and teachers, our niñas really can’t escape the world of words and books. They fill our bookshelves and theirs, spill out of drawers and pile up on most of the surfaces of our house!  One of our great joys is finding beautiful Spanish or English/Spanish bilingual children’s book for their collection. Since some of you might be embarking on summer reading, I thought I’d share some of our very favorites. Each of these isRead More ...

Grilled Love – A Father’s Day Craft

If I could choose the one thing my husband and my father have the most in common it is definitely grilling. That is why when I was thinking of something the kids could create for dad and grandpa this super cute mini grill “Grilled Love”  keepsake tin was the perfect idea.

Create, Explore, Story Tell and Connect With BabbaBox {Video}

Not sure if you’ve noticed already or not, but the reason why I don’t write any of the craft or activity posts on SpanglishBaby is because I am not crafty. At all. It’s not even in my blood. I actually have a case of envy, tinged with respect and desire, every time I read blog posts with pictures from creative moms and their kids. I feel my daughter is missing out on that. But, since I’m not one to dwellRead More ...

Coming soon: ParaNorman

ParaNorman is a 3D stop-motion comedy thriller from the folks who brought you Coraline. Norman is a bit of a ghost whisperer in a townRead More ...

Brave Advanced Screening Giveaway!

 ©2012 Disney/Pixar We’ve been raving about the upcoming Disney movie Brave for a while. We first got to hear about the fiery Merida from Ana when she was invited to learn how the Disney/Pixar magic is made and teased with the first half hour of Brave.  We even got to hear from the producer about the process that went into making this movie. One thing is for sure, we are pumped for Brave! And with good reason, or actually five reasons! AndRead More ...

Toolbox Treasure Art-A Father’s Day Craft

El Día del Padre / Father’s Day is coming up this June 17 and I’ve been a little stumped at what creative gift Sofía will give her Papi.  Recently I read an article about how people who received gifts in fancy wrapping tended to like the gifts considerably more than people who received the same gift but not wrapped as nicely.  I think this is super-true and certainly applies to children’s art as well.  I think any piece of art, wellRead More ...

La Luna: A Short Film That Will Have You Over the Moon

  On June 22nd, Disney*Pixar’s Brave finally hits theaters. As excited as we all are to watch Brave (and we should be!), make sure you’re sitting in your seat early enough so you don’t miss a very special short film which will be played right before Brave called La Luna. La Luna, written and directed by Enrico Casarosa, was actually one of the nominees for the Best Short Film (Animated) category in the 2012 Academy Awards (Oscars), but this is theRead More ...
