The game “rock, paper, scissors” is played all over the Spanish-speaking world.  In most countries it is piedra – rock, papel – paper, o tijera -or scissors. (In Peru it is called janquenpón, from the Japanese yan-ken-pon, and in Chile it is called cachipún.)

Teach your child to play this simple game in Spanish.  The actions reinforce the meaning of the Spanish words.  In addition, rhythm aids pronunciation.  It is a great way to use Spanish with your child!
