101 Easy Spanish Activities for Kids Stuck at Home (With Printable Lists)

Inside: Spanish activities for kids that can be done at home. 

Whew. A lot is going on.

Many of you are stuck at home right now. Classes are cancelled and playdates are a no-no. Aside from general unease itself, there are some pressing practical issues too. Issues like: what the heck do we all day long with these kids?

My kids’ classes are cancelled at least until April, and I expect it to be much longer. The president of Peru just ordered a mandatory quarantine for the next 15 days, at least.

It’s like summer break: sometimes it’s sweet and we’re all doing a puzzle or piled on the bed reading books. Sometimes it’s a long day of hollering at everyone to please calm down, and for heaven’s sake don’t wake the sleeping baby, and please just eat like a normal person in your chair for once.

But we have a choice for how to use this extra family time! I’m trying to see what kind of mom-goodness I can squeeze out of the situation. We’re all in this together, and many teachers and creators are pulling together to offer great resources you can use at home.

Which brings me to the premise of this post: how about using the extra time together to learn or practice more Spanish?

I don’t want to you waste any of your precious quarantine time trying to scrap together Spanish resources from all over the internet, either. Nope! Just treat yourself to a glass of wine or something nice and browse all these easy ideas you can simply do at home.

If you just want lists of awesome apps, playlist, channels, movies, books, etc. see my post on Summer Spanish Learning for Families. Otherwise, scroll on!
