What is the best way to teach a child a foreign language that you yourself don't know very well, if immersion is not an option and you are limited to what you can do in your home?

I have a very bright six-year-old daughter who I would like get started on a foreign language, particularly Spanish. She is interested an motivated to learn, but I only have a very elementary understanding of Spanish myself. Books? Software? Recordings? What have you done with your child to help them learn a language? We can devote maybe $200 to this, $300 at the most. She does have a fully bilingual aunt, but we don't get to see her often.
