We did a fun easy craft in our OT/Speech group this week. It was all about working on fine motor skills, following directions and vocabulary. I can see doing this for articulation and writing target words on the branches, pumpkins or paper leaves.
Here is what we used:
- construction paper – we used white but the choice is endless
- crayons – you could use colored pencils or markers
- confetti leaves and silk leaves – this is what we had picked up from the dollar store but any leaves would work- if you use paper leaves you could add even more words
- your hand – to trace around (now do you get the blog post title?!)
Now it’s your turn to twist this into your own therapy activity!
Here is what I added to my speech room door.
I used Streamer Paper Crepe from Party City. The big google eyes were from Target’s Dollar Spot but I have found them in craft stores. The pumpkins were printed from Word clip art.
I used talking bubbles in Word and typed in the jokes. The “jokes” were found on this site: Mummy Jokes
The therapy twist –
Most students were asked to answer the “joke” before looking at the answer.
My older students discussed the double meaning of the jokes.
My little ones labeled what was on my door.
Now add your own Twists!
