Christmas Therapy Tip of the Week
Christmas Speech Therapy Ideas for Toddlers
It’s time to start planning the therapy activities you’ll use for your little friends during the month of December.
Here’s one of my all-time favorite holiday speech therapy games to play with toddlers:
Matching Christmas Bows and Paper
I’ve used this game year after year for the last 15 years or so. I’ve even introduced this game to daycare and preschool teachers who always report that it’s a hit with all kinds of young children from toddlers who are just beginning to play a structured game to preschoolers as old as 4 or 5 who like to “race.”
All you’ll need is a package of solid color bows and matching pieces of poster board. With single children or a child and her siblings at home, I use pieces of construction paper for smaller spaces.
Watch the video for more details and for additional ways to modify the game to target both expressive and receptive language goals.
I hope it’s as fun for you and your little friends as it has been for mine!
