- Logic and creativity games: Conventional activities are tangram puzzles if they prefer something calmer, but you can also propose creating their own comic so that they develop their creativity, write a diary in which they tell how they feel and what they do. or make collages in which you give free rein to your imagination; Or make them move by playing to assemble your own choreography if they like dancing or creating their own version of the traditional Twister.
- Board games: If you are looking for board games to practice with the language, Palabrea can be very fun because it consists of searching for words thanks to double-sided letters that show on one side a symbol of the category to which it refers that term and on the other, three letters of different colors with which to guess the combination. Dobble is another one of the best known to make them keep their attention at all times since they will need it if they want to be the fastest to discover which is the drawing that appears in the pile of letters in the center that is repeated in the card they have in their hand; and the Who is who?
