Learn the Parts of the Face in Spanish

What You Need:

  • Paper plate
  • Old magazines or catalogs with pictures of people in them
  • Safety scissors
  • Glue
  • Glitter glue or 3-D glue and other embellishments

What You Do:

  1. Set out several magazines or catalogs for your child to thumb through. Explain to her that she is going to assemble her own face using pictures from the magazines so she should find parts that she likes. 
  2. Ask her to find two eyes, a nose, a mouth, and two ears. 
  3. Have her cut them out carefully.
  4. Help your child glue the pieces onto either side of the paper plate. In this example, the bottom of the plate was used for the face because the patterned border on the front would have distracted from the face.
  5. Ask your child to decorate the plate by adding hair and any other painted accents she wants. 
  6. Once the paints are dry, write the English to Spanish translations on the back of the plate as a quick reference guide. Face = cara, Eyes = ojos, Nose = nariz, Mouth = boca, Ears = orejas
  7. If your child is ready for more complex words, include features such as eyelashes, eyebrows, chin, cheek, forehead, teeth, etc.
  8. For fun, have your child draw a miniature body with hands and feet so that those words can be included in the lesson, too.
  9. For even more fun with Spanish, try introducing descriptive colors, expressions or feelings such as happy, sad, sleepy, and so on.
