La Mother Tongue is my medium to share the joys and challenges of being a new parent as well as to share how we make a conscious effort in our daily life to bring baby up bilingual.

Hand and Foot Pavo
Sofía and I try to do arts and crafts every week.Sometimes that works out, sometimes it doesn’t, but hey we try!For Thanksgiving, we made a pavo, a turkey, Enchanted Learning. I laminated some cartunlina, construction paper, and then I traced Sofía’s hands and feet.After labored hours of cutting out those tiny little fingers, we put it all together to make a pavo. We made two.We kept one and brought the other one to Tío Felipe’s house to hang on the door.I had no idea how much Sofía liked the activity until afterwards. She tells the story to people often about how I put her manos down on paper and traced them.What she does is re-enacts the process.She evidently really LOVED tracing her hands and feet because she asks to do it often, or I will find her putting her feet on the etch-a-sketch and tracing them herself!
