I found a great blog tonight with super “how to” tricks for several consonant sounds, and I’m linking the ones for toddler/early preschool consonants.
While regular readers of this site know that my philosophy is language-language-language, there is a place for “no pressure practice” for toddlers, even while your main focus is improving receptive and expressive language skills. Once language is at an age-appropriate level, or your child is preschool-aged (over 3), then you can begin sound practice as your main focus for speech therapy.
Here are the links –

She didn’t include tips for /p, b, m/, the earliest developing consonant sounds that I focus on all day, every day, so I’ll try to write these myself soon, unless she does all the hard work and beats me to it! Laura
