Los Doce Días de Navidad

Easy Way to Learn the Lyrics and Get Crafty
For the 12 Days of Christmas in Spanish!

Los Doce Dias de Navidad or the 12 Days of Christmas in Spanish, are the perfect opportunity to mix American and Hispanic cultures.

How do you do it? With this easy downloadable craft activity and lyrics in Spanish. Children love singing, and during the NavidadSpanish Christmas songs become a perfect way to reinforce language.

For many years I heard Mss Piggy singing the famous 12 Days of Christmas, and every time I heard it I thought about the meaning of each word. At the beginning, it wasn’t easy because I was just learning English…

Then our son came and mixing American and Hispanic cultures was the natural thing to do. I noticed my son also lit up when Mss Piggy sang the song, and that was when it hit me…

I had to find the lyrics of The Twelve Days of Christmas in Spanish to learn it. Then I decided to mix the learning process with a fun and EASY craft activity we could do every day without stressing out.

Los Doce Días de Navidad Craft Activity PDF

This is super easy. To get going just download this easy and totally original printable I created.

You are going to love this project! It has a window for each day of the Doce Días de Navidad where you can glue the particular gift your “True Love gave to you”…It comes with the names of the gifts, the images and ordinal numbers in Spanish from 1-12.

This song can be particularly difficult however, with this activity, children end up using Spanish language repetition and a kinesthetic approach when they have to cut, glue and open the windows of each of the 12 days of Christmas.
