iPhone and iPad apps from Spanish Playground teach children Spanish with fun effective games.

Bingo in Spanish is a good way to review vocabulary with kids of any age and it is good listening practice, too. There are lots of printable bingo games online, but this version with pictures of common words is great for children learning Spanish. The game is made available by the Asociación Mundial de Educadores Infantiles.

There are only eight pictures on each card and you play until the whole card is covered. The cards are a nice size for kids, and the pictures are clear and colorful. I have printed them in black and white too, and they still are fine for playing the game.
