Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15 and ends on October 15 to honor the independence days of several Latin American countries. Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates citizens with ancestry from the Caribbean, Central and South America, and Spain.
Ways to Celebrate
Since this month is meant to celebrate the rich and diverse heritage of Hispanic Americans, here are a few ways that you can honor and celebrate their contributions with your family.
1. Learn Spanish with Little Pim
Are you looking to teach your little one how to speak Spanish? Follow along with Little Pim’s Let’s Learn Spanish, a series designed for teaching preschoolers and toddlers different foreign languages. Look for the Little Pim Languages category in your Kidoodle.TV app.
2. Stream Spanish Language Shows
Look for the En Español category in your Kidoodle.TV app for series available in Spanish.
3. Learn About A Latin American Country
Did you know there are over 20 different countries that speak Spanish? Some countries like Mexico, America, Spain, Colombia, Argentina, Venezuela, Peru, Chile, Ecuador and Guatemala have Spanish as their official language!
4. Cook An Authentic Meal
Go on a culinary vacation! There is no better way to experience another culture than through food. Research mouthwatering dishes like empanadas or arepas to try with your kids, and learn how to cook them at home. Or, try some traditional fare from a local restaurant. Spanish tapas, anyone?
5. Travel (From Home)
Grab a map or globe and test your kids on their knowledge of Latin American geography. Go for a (virtual) tour and visit historical landmarks with Google Earth.
6. Make kid-friendly arts and crafts based on Hispanic traditions
7. Read books by Hispanic authors
Another way to immerse yourself and your kids is through the written word. Discover colorful stories, folktales, family traditions, and beautiful poetry inspired by diverse Hispanic communities.
Sing along to traditional children’s folk songs like De Colores. Or have a dance party and explore the discography of iconic artists like Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, Ricky Martin, Selena, Pitbull, and more!
