For Spring Break Invest in Mexican Loteria

Playing Loteria
Loteria for Spring Break

Now that Spring Break is upon us and los huercos are coming home for seven days straight, here in Texas anyway, you know they are going to utter those two little words that always drive me up the wall: “I’m bored!”  Normally I’d respond, “so find something to do… or here, why don’t you clean your room, take out the trash,” etc., but since I’m trying to be nicer for lent, let me instead make a very friendly recommendation for all parents.  Or for anyone who’ll be around kids for Spring Break for that matter.

Do yourself a favor, don’t underestimate the power of a good game of Mexican Loteria!  Inevitably los huercos are going to get tired of playing their gizmos and gadgets and will start driving you a little crazy over Spring Break.  Here’s where loteria can be a lifesaver.  You can buy the card game, referred to by some as Mexican bingo, for less than $5 and the rules are pretty simple.

Seriously, the game is fun for everyone.  It’s a great way for the entire family to spend time together.  You don’t believe me?  Here’s a little hidden camera audio from a recent Loteria Night at my in-laws:

  1. I remember playing Loteria with mi Abuelita during my Spring Breaks in Mexico. So much fun (& not to mention how my grandmother kept trying to cheat!). Great memories, too! Definitely planning on playing Loteria with my Kiddo soon 🙂

    1. It’s such a fun and inexpensive way to spend quality time with the family, and one other thing folks have pointed out today, is that it’s a great tool for brushing up on your Spanish! Even more reasons to play with your kids 🙂

  2. Our family loves playing Loteria! Every month, we get together to play. Everyone that is attending has to buy two $3 to $5 gifts. We do prizes for the special games like the do in Bingo – crazy L, “7” four corners etc. its so much fun. We also play for money too but prizes make the game more exciting because we wrap them and don’t know what you are going to get. It is a good excuse to get together with the family and friends. Love making crafts with the Loteria, too. Love your blog!!
