Flashlight Find

I love playing games with my kids. With my oldest daughter, I can have a great conversation in Spanish. My second daughter doesn't chat as much. She does enjoy playing games with me, so to practice her Spanish, we have to play a game.

I decided to use something they love- the flashlight. We took 5 objects and made sure everyone knew what they were called in Spanish. We had to find a room that could get really dark (we ended up sitting in the bathroom and they loved it!). We placed the objects in a row. Then we took turns holding the flashlight. They would shine the light on one object and then say:

"En la obscuridad, no veo muchas cosas pero puedo ver.... un osito de peluche!"

It was a silly way to review some vocabulary, but they loved the suspense of the dark and then using the flashlight! Hope someone else can use this little game :)

I'll have to try this with my kids. Anything with a flashlight is always exciting! Great idea!
