Dora and the Lost City of Gold Craft: DIY Spanish Lesson Trading Cards

Dora & The Lost City of Gold craft. #craftychica

This Dora and the Lost City of Gold craft project is a sponsored partnership with Paramount Pictures.

I can’t tell you how happy I am to see Dora and the Lost City of Gold open on movie screens all over the country on August 9th! This movie takes our beloved cartoon heroine and shows her in a whole new light. One of strength, smarts, wits, and even more! This film is perfect for kids who grew up with the series, and anyone who is now just discovering her.  A little about the movie: Having spent most of her life exploring the jungle with her parents, nothing could prepare Dora (Isabela Moner) for her most dangerous adventure ever – High School. Always the explorer, Dora quickly finds herself leading Boots (her best friend, a monkey), Diego (Jeffrey Wahlberg), a mysterious jungle inhabitant (Eugenio Derbez), and a ragtag group of teens on a live-action adventure to save her parents (Eva Longoria, Michael Peña) and solve the impossible mystery behind a lost city of gold.

Check out the trailer here.

See what I mean?

In honor of all the excitement, I made a Spanish lesson trading card game themed around the new movie. What’s fun about this craft is it is portable, fun, and will help you learn new words in either Spanish or English!

DIY Dora and the Lost City of Gold Game

I used my mini printer. The film has a sticky back which makes it fast and easy to assemble this craft. If you don’t have a mini-printer, then you can use my printables and size them to 2.3 x 3.4″

Use a software program or app to add a word to each photo.

To make it even easier, here is a printable I made for you!

Here’s what I used:

Print out your pictures and sort them in sets.

Then take each photo and peel away the backing paper and sandwich the sticky sides together. If you aren’t using a mini printer, you can use a craft glue stick to adhere to the set of each picture. Make sure to line them up evenly!

Here we go!

Now you can see how each picture is double-sided with both the English and Spanish word. You can make your set as extensive as you wish.

What I love is these are the perfect size to use as trading cards. You can even make a new set with Dora-inspired phrases!Dora the Explorer & The Lost City of Gold craft. #craftychica

Love & light,
