Father’s Day is coming up in a couple of weeks. It is on June 17th this year, and for those of you who want to get a head start here are a few resources. In Spanish, Father’s Day is Día del padre or Día de los padres. Making Spanish Father’s Day cards is a great language activity for kids. One of the easiest ways to make cards is using the printables on the website Correomágico. I like this site because the cards have a variety of messages. Kids can read lots of words and phrases related to fathers, love and family. Then they can write personalize the text on the card they chose to print.
To personalize the printable Spanish Father’s Day cards on Correomágico, just click on Personalizar e imprimir gratis below the card. A pop-up advertisement might open, but after you close that, there is a simple form to personalize the card.
Children will understand the labels from the example text, but these are the words in the form:
Escribe tu mensaje (Write your message)
Correomágico also has Spanish Father’s Day bookmarks, señaladores, that you can personalize and print. There are three designs with several different phrases of sample text. There is also a mini-poster from the family dog.
