I brought Phineas and Ferb fruit snacks home as a special treat today. J was excited to find a game on the back of the box. M, J, and I played the simple (roll the die, move your piece) game while L was in Spanish camp this morning. We counted in Spanish, but otherwise spoke English.
The directions suggest using a fruit snack as a game piece. Since my kids kept popping the pieces in their mouths, I question the hygiene of this advice. I suppose a "no eating the game playing piece" rule would eliminate the problem.
My dear friend, Sarah, blogs about playing games with your kids here.
SpanglishBaby has some excellent suggestions about using games to learn Spanish.
