In this Spanish learning activity, you’ll learn to make a bilingual mobile of the seasons. By using simple homemade products, you’ll be able to recycle and teach children about the seasons.
The Spanish learning activity consists of making a mobile from a wire hanger and displaying the seasons on paper plates and cut outs. Children will be cutting pieces of common things of seasons.
They will later paste these findings on their circles of seasons. Children will attach them to the wire hanger and display.
