We may go to Spain for a week in August, and if so I would love for my daughter to spend a few hours (or even better 1-2 days!) with local children. I was thinking of seeing if there were any activities (arts, sports etc) we could enrol her in. For instance, in Paris there are often activities organised by big museums - but not so many in August.
Does anyone know about any classes/day camps organised in August that 3-year-olds can attend? If we can find an interesting one, we will plan our own holiday (location etc) around it.

Where exactly in Spain are you going to be? Like you said, chances are there aren't so many available activities in August, but it also depends on the city you're going to be visiting. The larger the city, the better chances you have to find activities. Cities normally organize "campamentos de verano" both during June and July; the place where my parents normally go for their summer vacation also offers tennis classes, beach-related activities, crafts, and some "campamentos" stuff...so location has a lot to do with it (they go to this small place, but because of tourism, there are a lot of things to do with children there). Generally speaking, you can search for "actividades para niños en _______ (name of the city) agosto" to find some useful info.

Mayken: Hey Adam Beck, how come your photo on that list is bigger than everyone else's?

Adam Beck: Mayken, I don't know, but I wish I could say it's because I'm taller! My son (almost 12) is now nearly as tall as I am. Just yesterday I told him that I have to start growing again!

Amy: Bless!! how cute is that!!! Reminds me of a similar thing that happened with my youngest when she was 18 months: she said the sound right for every animal but the cow. She kept answering "Lola" because of a famous Spanish nursery rhyme about a cow!

Alba: My son caught us by surprise when we said thank you (in English) to a waiter in a Mexican restaurant, and he said "gracias" (thank you) to him too in Spanish, also signing it! He was having a blast and there was some Spanish music in the background.
