¡Navidad! It’s here! It’s HERE! We love Christmas time in our home. In our bilingual/multicultural home, I am always on the hunt for materials that will preserve the Mexican heritage in our home, and encourage my little ones to speak Spanish! With the season of gifting, I want to find creative ways to keep Christ, the best gift, at the center of our celebrations. This is actually quite easy when looking for Spanish Christmas resources, because so many Latin American Christmas traditions are faith-based! Here is a list of my favorite Spanish Christmas resources for Preschoolers, helping little ones to learn about and embrace their Latinx roots while growing their faith.
This Libro de villancicos (Christmas Carols) is perfect for bringing to carol to the neighbors or simply singing at home. Each page features the lyrics to a popular Spanish Christmas Carol and pictures that illustrate the Christmas story in the song.
This is a list I put together to introduce little ones to the Christmas story using carols. Christmas carols are everywhere this time of year, and can serve as an organic way to share the Gospel with your little one.
Mi Burrito Sabanero Album from Generacion 12 Kids
You all know how much I love Generacion 12 Kids. So is it any surprise their Christmas album made it on this list?
This is a fun game we played last year, and we played it everyday until Christmas. It was loved that much! This is perfect for any child who LOVES the song “Mi Burrito Sabanero.”
Introduce your little one to Las Posadas! It can be hard in the United States to actually find a posada to join (at least in Minnesota). However, you can still celebrate with your little one using this fun board game.
I LOVE all the things Nicole from Color and Kindness produces. This game pack is no different. I was just tickled that she produced it in Spanish! I downloaded my copy the minute it launched, and it is already a favorite over here.
This is our FAVORITE Christmas book right now (can you tell my kids are obsessed with this song). I love Canticos books because they are bilingual, with lyrics in both Spanish and English. They also have free apps that play the song so your little one can sing-a-long to their book.
This is a new-to-me book. I stumbled upon it on our last trip to Barnes and Nobles, and it is the cutest. It’s the story of a little star that noone really thinks is good for anything, but God uses her to do something BIG! Can you guess what it is?
Who doesn’t love Lil’ Libros? I was so tickled when they released this book to teach little ones their colors and introduce them to the story of Los Reyes.
This is a beautiful count-down devotional for Christmas. It follows the calendar of Las Posadas, each day exploring a different element of the Nativity. This is one of the resources we will be using to welcome Jesus into our hearts and home this year.
This mini book is a convenient printable, making it an easy and versatile way to introduce littles to Dia de los Reyes.
Ok, so these aren’t technically in Spanish. They are wordless, but are silicone coloring mats that illustrate the Christmas story. What’s so great about these mats that they made it on the list? The silicone makes it so you can color then simply rinse off and then color again. The fun is endless, because they are reusable and made out of highly durable material. They are an awesome boredom-buster for out at a restaurant or on a long road trip.
If your little one loves to color, this is the best advent calendar for you! Each day has a coloring page telling a portion of the Christmas story.
These color-by-numbers are a festive way to work on number recognition.
Learn all about the parts of a posada with this fun bilingual coloring book.
Have fun learning about Los Reyes Magos with these crowns you can print, color, and wear.
In many Latin American countries it is tradition for children to write letters to Los Reyes and ask for presents. Get your little one started with this fun template.
I love this FREE printable nacinamiento from De Los Tales. It can be a fun way to spark a conversation and illustrate the Christmas story.
This is such a fun printable counting down to Christmas using the Posada calendar (9 days! Which feels a lot more manageable with little ones). Each day has an emblem that’s pasted to the countdown and a bilingual description explaining the role each symbol plays in la Posada.
I love this FREE advent calendar for keeping Christ and the spirit of giving at the center of our celebrating.
Have you heard of the “Star From Afar?” This Christ-centered alternative to “Elf on the Shelf” also comes in Spanish! Follow Los Reyes as they make their way to Belen.
Looking for some ways to celebrate 3 Kings Day with your toddler? These are some ways we celebrated last year.
Hosting a Dia de los Reyes party? Be sure to check out this decoration kit to celebrate the kings’ arrival.
Does your little one LOVE the alphabet? Mine does, and is always trying to figure what letter words start with. Take the learning into this festive season using this Abecedario de Navidad.
Why YES! I did find Charlie Brown’s Christmas in español on YouTube! You’re welcome.
YouTube actually has quite the selection of Veggie Tales in Spanish. I was just tickled to find “The Toy That Saved Christmas.”
This beautifully animated version of the Christmas story comes with Spanish audio! Simply head to settings and select your audio options.
