Game with colors: Place paper squares of colors (the ones that you have worked on in Spanish) on the floor in a circle. Have the children stand on a color. Have them move around the circle all in the same direction while music plays. When the music stops, each child should be on one color. Say the color in Spanish. If a child is standing on that color he has to sit in the center of the circle. The last one left standing wins.
