Spanish vocabulary games for kids using drawings of stick figures.

Stick figures can be used for lots of Spanish vocabulary games. For example, in the printable I have included, kids read a short description and then add the details to the drawing. It is a simple, quick way to review vocabulary, and it is fun to compare drawings. You can download the printable using the link below.

Of course, you don’t need a printable do Spanish vocabulary games with stick figures. There are many variations you can do drawing as you go, on cards, or on a white board. The trick is to limit the details to things that are easy to draw to keep the activity moving along. Here are a few more Spanish vocabulary games with stick figures:

  • If you have a group, you can do Spanish vocabulary games in teams, like a relay race where teams add details to a stick figure drawing on the board.
  • Make a list of characteristics and a list of objects and let kids choose one item from each list to draw or have a friend draw.
  • Play Spanish vocabulary games that introduce an element of chance. Put the characteristics and items into two piles and draw one of each, or make a double spinner and draw the different combinations of details.
  • Put the descriptions on index cards and make the same number of stick figure cards. Take a card, read the description, and then add the details to a stick figure card. Once you have added the details, you can do these Spanish vocabulary games in reverse, matching the drawings to the correct descriptions.
  • Use the cards with the stick figures and the descriptions to play memory.
  • Stick figure drawing makes a great listening activity and a fun pair activity. I have also used the drawings as writing prompts. You can adapt these Spanish vocabulary games with stick figures to any skill and level.
