The Spanish flag used today was only established in 1978, so it’s quite modern as flags go! Ask your child to have a go at drawing and colouring in the Spanish flag.
The main colours of the Spanish flag are yellow and red. It also has a coat of arms to the left-hand side. Your little one doesn’t need to worry if they can’t get the coat of arms exactly right – it’s a very complicated design and we’re certainly no Picassos ourselves!
Listen to some traditional Spanish music with your little one (you can search for “traditional Spanish music” or “Flamenco music” on YouTube or Spotify). Who doesn’t love to count whilst having a boogie? You could also ask them what they like or don’t like about the music and how it’s different from music they’ve heard before.
If you’ve got a budding musician on your hands, why not check out our musical makes activities and get them to play along to the music?
Spain and Sangria go hand in hand. If you’ve ever been to Spain, or if you’ve been to a tapas restaurant, chances are you’ve tried this boozy, fruity delicacy. This is our alcohol-free version so your little ones can enjoy a taste of Spain whilst you drink it the way it was intended – with alcohol!.
What you’ll need:
- Pomegranate juice
- Orange juice
- An orange
- An apple
- Sparkling water or lemonade
Mix together three parts pomegranate juice with one part orange juice.
Slice the orange and the apple and add them to the juice mixture. Whilst you’re cutting up the fruit, why not practise some counting with your little one?
Half-fill a glass with the juice and fruit mixture and then top up with your sparkling water or lemonade.
Drink up, and enjoy!
