As a busy homeschooling mom of three, I love it when I can find easy, no-prep activities that still really pack in a lot of learning. Bonus if it works for all three kids, despite the range of ages! That’s why I love this easy Spanish activity with play dough. It uses just one material (play dough), which you likely have on hand, and a little imagination! It’s easy to adapt for different levels of language ability and tons of fun for everyone.
Easy Spanish Activity with Play Dough
Getting set up for this easy Spanish activity couldn’t be simpler – just pull out your container of play dough and get ready for some fun!
Just ask your child (in Spanish) to use the play dough to make the object you tell them. In other words, you might ask them to make un gato (a cat) or una casa (a house).
You could also give them less exact prompts, like to make un animal que vive en el bosque (an animal that lives in the forest) or tu comida favorita (your favorite food).
For older students, you can flip the script and have them build an object of their choosing and tell you in Spanish what it is!
More advanced students could come up with a story related to their creation and perhaps even act it out.
What other variations could you add to this easy Spanish activity?
