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.
Instead of giving clues as phrases, this app has pictures of the objects or animals and a bank of letters to choose from. The letters can be color-coded to make it a bit easier to guess if you forget a word. Also, choose from crucigramas clásicos and crucigramas con adivinanza, depending on your child’s age and skill level.
I found this app to be a fun mix of a vocabulary test and a game. Try it out with your kids to help them with spelling or use it to entertain yourself in a long carpool line.
