Summer is here and it’s time to look for ways to reinforce Spanish vocabulary during the next few months. While learning materials should, in my opinion, be engaging all year round, that’s especially true in summer. Why? Because children want to enjoy the break from heavy studying during the school year.
So to help parents and educators, I’ve created this simple, summer-themed Spanish fortune teller – or comecocos – for Spanish and ESL learners.
If you aren’t sure how this game works, check out this Spanish cootie catcher post on Spanish Playground for a description, videos, and more printable paper fortune tellers.

How to Use the Spanish Fortune Teller
For this version of a Spanish fortune teller, kids choose a number at the beginning while the comecocos is closed and the players open and close it until the chosen number is reached. Then, the players choose the topic they like best to discover where they should go this summer.
The directions for cutting and folding these fortune tellers are included in the file.
