Two Spanish New Year games for kids to practice vocabulary as they celebrate.

Are you planning a New Year’s celebration with friends and family? These Spanish New Year games are fun for kids and add a little language practice to the evening or New Year’s Day.

The I Spy picture search has Spanish New Year vocabulary. Beginning learners can practice numbers, colors and words we associate with the celebration.

The word search has some higher level vocabulary, including concepts like esperanza,  felicidad and prosperidad. Help kids associate these words with esperar, feliz and the greeting Próspero Año Nuevo.

Kids will learn more from both Spanish New Year activities if you use the words in sentences and encourage them to do the same. With the I Spy picture search, use the verbs hay, veo, or encontré to say how many of each object you find.

If you are celebrating the New Year with children learning Spanish, or talking about el Año Nuevo with a class, you may also want to share the tradition of eating twelve grapes at midnight as the New Year begins. You can learn more about that tradition and find a Spanish Playground activity based on the tradition here.
