Fun & Interactive Spanish Activities for Your Next Game Night

Fun & Interactive Spanish Activities for Your Next Game Night

If you haven’t added regular game nights to your family time, you must! These fun family opportunities can help with academic performance, a positive parent-child bond, and higher emotional well-being. However, don’t think you can only play these games in English, though. You can all practice your bilingual skills together with these fun and interactive Spanish activities for your next game night.

1. Pictionary

Even if you aren’t artistically inclined, everyone enjoys a good game of Pictionary. All you need is a pen, some paper, and a surface to draw on. This activity is great because it works with both larger and smaller families. It’s adaptable to the type of night you need, such as wild and exciting or something more laid-back. Depending on the skill level of who’s playing, it might streamline the process to make a giant list of vocabulary words that your kids can start with. Having a “word bank” can also make it easier for the guessers as well.

2. Word Snake

For intermediate children, word snake is a fun way to practice recalling and writing a bunch of different vocabulary without paying attention to proper (or any) grammar. Essentially, the game works when one person writes down a word. The following person has to provide a word that begins with the last letter of the previous word. Although most people play this game by writing the words down (hence the “snake” imagery), it’s also something you could speak out loud instead.

3. Other Board Games in Spanish

Finally, you can find most crowd-favorite board games in Spanish versions online. By getting a game in another language, your family will be more emersed in the experience of playing it. There are plenty of options available such as Operation, Monopoly, or Scrabble. Playing a board game like this is an excellent way for older students to supplement their regular middle school Spanish curriculum.

Besides these popular options, there are still so many fun and interactive Spanish activities for your next game night. Experiment with family favorites to find creative and engaging ways to add bilingual opportunities to your lives.
