I have several groups of older students who are working on their /r/, /s/ and /l/ and most sessions we are doing drill and kill types of activities.  I am always looking for new activities that will keep them motivated and get me the repetitions that I want!  Today for Wise Wallet Wednesday I am going to share an activity you can use with all your  Halloween decor trick or treat buckets.

We have been using Papertoss app in therapy as a break in between repetitions and my kids love the challenge.  This got the wheels in my head turning and I thought, “Why don’t we bring Papertoss into the speech room Halloween style?”

All you need is a couple of Halloween buckets, and some scrap paper to crumble up to play a real live version of Papertoss!  Now, I just need a fan to make it extra tricky! For my game, I “borrowed” my son’s trick or treat bucket, grabbed a haunted house at the dollar store and used a Halloween tin bucket that I snagged at Target dollar spot to use to store pencils during the Halloween season.

Cost for the game= $2

Speech kiddos= excited to practice /r/, /s/, /l/

Over 50 productions for each kid= Happy Speech Therapist

What activities do you use to keep your kids excited about drill and kill in articulation therapy?  Happy early Halloween!  I hope to share some pictures of my little ones with you this weekend.
