Are you ready to have fun and be hands-on while learning a new language? Kids love to create, participate and be involved in everyday activities. Preparing this recipe together will provide special time together while introducing and practicing Spanish vocabulary. Cooking is a great way to bring a new perspective into learning with connections to math, science, and new language targets. Are you ready to be “cocineros” & “cocineras” and make some delicious “pan de queso” (cheese bread)? 

¡¡Manos a la obra!! (Let’s get to work!)

Pan de Queso Recipe

“Los ingredientes” (Ingredients)

1 taza (cup) de harina (flour)

Instructions Video

¡A cocinar! (Let’s cook!)

Songs and Crafts

While you wait for the bread to be cooked, let’s sing a song! (¡A cantar!) 🎤

Do you want to create a special apron? I got these at Michaels, and personalized them with their names written with fabric markers. I even let the kids decorate them the day before cooking to add an art activity into the mix.

Now that “el pan de queso” is ready, let’s enjoy! ¡A comer! Let’s eat!

¡Delicioso! (Delicious!)

I hope that your children enjoyed being “cocineritos” (chefs)!!
