3 crafts and activities to learn and practice Spanish winter vocabulary

In this blog post I am putting together 3 crafts and activities to learn and practice Spanish winter vocabulary.


  1. Create your own snow.

I haven’t seen any snow so far this winter, but with this activity you can enjoy making a mini snow man from home.

You will need:

  1. Corn starch
  2. Shaving foam
  3. A bowl to mix
  4. A spoon

It is really very easy, just mix slowly the corn starch and the shaving foam until the consistency is firm enough to mould it into different things.

Vocabulary to learn or practice:

Snowman:  el muñeco de nieve

Snow:  la nieve

White: blanco is the name of the colour. To describe the snow: the snow is white you would say “la nieve es blanca”. La tells us that the noun nieve is feminine, therefore the adjective blanco needs to be feminine too.

  1. Loo roll penguins.

You will need:

  1. Loo rolls depending on how many penguins you are making
  2. Black paint and brush
  3. White paper and orange paper

Paint the whole roll with black paint and leave it to dry. Cut out an oval shape from the white paper and stick it on the roll as a belly and a triangle from the orange paper and stick it on the roll as a beak. Stick the wobbly eyes and there you have it.
