1. La carrera por el aeropuerto (The Airport Race) 🏁

I created this game so we could practice the airport vocabulary and commonly used Spanish verbs in a different way than just with flashcards. Aidan loved it! He even took it to a friend’s house to play.

His friend took Spanish for a few years, so Aidan was confident his friend would be able to translate the cards and spaces. But when I picked Aidan up, Aidan told me he ended up translating because his friend hasn’t taken Spanish in a while and forgot a lot of what he learned.

I asked Aidan if he had to look at the English translations, and he said no. Then he said to me, “your work is paying off.” Yes, it is!! 💯

This is the game Airport Race at the beginning. I was a Lego person and Aidan was the mini dinosaur.

He’s not easy to please, so him liking the game is a win for me! He did have a few suggestions to make the game “spicier” 🌶️ (as he put it). I included one of his ideas to make the game “spicier” in the instructions.

Overall, I kept the format and instructions of the game pretty simple so even younger kids (early elementary) could play it. I won the first time we played and was impressed that Aidan didn’t lose it when he lost. It’s no joke that redheads have tempers. 👨‍🦰 =🌋

Instead, he wanted to play it again. And we laughed so much when we were playing! It was so fun. It was also pretty quick, so if you’re looking for a way to spend positive time with your kids but not take up a ridiculous amount of time (hello, Monopoly), then this game fits the bill.

I hate it!!

Plus, you can start learning Spanish right away. I included English translations of all of the Spanish phrases on the board and on the cards. And if this is your first Spanish activity and you don’t know Spanish yet, you can use Google Translate to hear the pronunciation of the words.

2. El Juego de Mentiroso (The Liar Game)

Click to Download: El juego de mentiroso (The Liar Game)

This game is to practice the phrases “me gusta,” “me encanta,” and “paso.” There is a game board and then a card for each space.

The card asks a question like, “¿Qué te gusta comer? (What do you like to eat?)” and then the player takes a slip of paper that says lie or truth. Depending on what that slip of paper is, you say the truth for your answer or a lie. Then the other players have to guess if you’re telling the truth or not.

Aidan and I laughed a lot playing this game too. Some of the questions were easy for us to trick each other, but some questions were super easy for the other player to guess. A couple of the questions I got were too challenging to lie about (Aidan knows my habits too well), so he easily won the points on those rounds.

We’ve only played this game once so far, but I can’t wait to play it again!
