The Best Spanish Christmas Resources for Preschoolers

¡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.

Music

Libro de Villancicos

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.

Carol the Christmas Story: Using Villancicos to share the Gospel

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?

Games

Mi Burrito Sabanero DIY Board Game

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.”

Mommy Maestra Posada Board Game

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.

Color and Kindness Christmas Game Pack

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.

Books

Mi Burrito Sabanero by Canticos

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.

La Pequeña Estrella de Navidad

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?

Los Tres Reyes Magos by Lil’ Libros

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.

El Burrito de Navidad

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.

Dia de los Reyes Mini book

This mini book is a convenient printable, making it an easy and versatile way to introduce littles to Dia de los Reyes.

Coloring Activities

His Kids Company Nativity Coloring Mats

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.

Mi Primer Libro Adviento Para Colorear

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.

Christmas Color-by-Number

These color-by-numbers are a festive way to work on number recognition.

Mommy Maestra “Las Posadas” Bilingual Coloring Book

Learn all about the parts of a posada with this fun bilingual coloring book.

Coronas for Dia de Los Reyes

Have fun learning about Los Reyes Magos with these crowns you can print, color, and wear.

Letters for los Reyes

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.

De los Tales- Navidad Printable Activity Pack

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.

Count Downs

Mommy Maestra “Las Posadas” countdown

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.

Scripture and Acts of Service Advent Calendar

I love this FREE advent calendar for keeping Christ and the spirit of giving at the center of our celebrating.

Activities

La Estrella Lejana

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.

Activities for Dia de los Reyes

Looking for some ways to celebrate 3 Kings Day with your toddler? These are some ways we celebrated last year.

Movies

La Navidad de Carlitos

Why YES! I did find Charlie Brown’s Christmas in español on YouTube! You’re welcome.

Veggie Tales: El Juguete Que Salvo la Navidad

YouTube actually has quite the selection of Veggie Tales in Spanish. I was just tickled to find “The Toy That Saved Christmas.”
