Roses are red.

Las rosas son rojas.

Las violetas son azules.

  • Go on a scavenger hunt in red
    Red is the color of love, so you can use the opportunity provided by Valentine’s Day to go on a scavenger hunt with your little one to find and name all the red things you can. Haddie & Lulu and the Color Conundrum would be a great place to start for ideas. You can take the scavenger hunt outside to find flowers growing in your neighborhood like rosas (roses) and violetas (violets). Finally, celebrate your word-searcher with a feast of red foods, such as fresas (strawberries) or sandía (watermelon). Wherever your search takes you, I’m sure you will find something to love.
