Two Fun Apps: Cinco de Mayo Style – Kids Learn Spanish and You Make Dinner

Cinco de Mayo is coming up around the corner, here are two apps to download and  use for the special occasion. One to teach kids Spanish and one to download recipes and  learn to cook the whole enchilada!

If you have kids and want them to learn Spanish, give Superstar Spanish a try. It’s good for kids ages 5-10 by using phonics to teach kids Spanish. Users see and hear the letters and numbers, then play games to reinforce the words. Stars are awarded too! I’m getting my niece and nephew hooked on this vs phonics. lol.

CookIt 123 has hundreds of recipes for Mexican dishes. You can filter all of those recipes by meal type or ingredient and when you find one you can mark it as a favorite and download it or print it. Better yet, once you have downloaded the app, all of the recipes are stored in your computer so you don’t need internet access to see them.

I’m using the app now to figure out my birthday/Cinco de Mayo dinner. Maybe something with poblano chilis? Or how about trying something new with avocado? So whether it’s Taco Tuesday, Burrito Brunch, Fajita Friday, choose a meal and enjoy the Sangria or margarita! Salud!

What are you cooking for Cinco de Mayo?

Find it with the recipe app CookIt 123:

    Love a good recipe app, and these ones seems like a good start for even adults without great culinary skills…good find. We cover many Meatless Monday recipes on our site so this will be helpful. Though we decided to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a fun kid’s craft.
