Ideas for Winter Crafts to Use in Speech

Ideas for Winter Crafts to Use in Speech

SLPs either love or hate crafts. They can be a LOT to prep and make a mess. But I would like to argue that easy, simple crafts can be just the activity you need to help increase engagement with a theme or working on functional communication. When planning co-teaching lessons, I will use a simple craft one to two times a month to help reinforce a concept from the book we used. Often times my students dig doing it and we have opportunities to talk about the craft after it’s completed. Today, I wanted to share some ideas for winter crafts that don’t take a long time to prep and can pair well with your winter theme unit.

Craft Materials to Have on Hand 

Easy ideas for winter crafts that don't require a lot of prep or high cost materials.

When thinking about ideas for winter crafts that you can use for therapy, it’s always best to have the craft supplies ready to go. Investing in a small stash can last you for many months, or even the whole year. Your staff prep room may also have most of the supplies, so it won’t be much of a cost from your wallet. Here is a list of craft materials you want to have handy (Amazon affiliate links included):

– String or yarn (Found at Dollar Tree)

Construction paper (Check your staff room)

Jumbo Popsicle Sticks

Colored pencils or markers

Tissue paper squares (you can find some at Dollar Tree too, just not as many colors)

Glue Sticks

Paint and Q-tips

Paper plates 

Ideas for Snowman Crafts

If you LOVE doing a snowman theme in January-February, you can do a snowman craft to pair with any book. This snowman craft template comes with different targets, so that you can use it with any mixed group. Do ONE craft with everyone, but have the targets tailored to your students speech or language goals.

Similarly, make a fun snowman paper plate craft. This can be great for a whole class lesson to work on functional communication. Or, you can do it with your elementary students and glue or write their speech targets on the back. I often print pages from the Any Craft Companion Resource. The trick is to select four pages and then print four to a page, so that they print on one page.

These ideas for winter crafts can be paired with story books to reinforce the character or vocabulary from the book.
This easy snowman paper plate craft is another idea for the winter season!

Has your speech sessions needed a little revival of enthusiasm to keep your students motivated to practice their speech productions in therapy? Or, maybe you have a child that is a mover and shaker and needs to get out of their seat to stay focused on their productions. In this blog post, I am going to be sharing how YOU can make paper plate paddles with your students and get high trials while also incorporating movement into your session. Plus, your students will love taking home their paper plate paddle! To learn more about how to prep this craft (spoiler alert: it’s really easy!), keep reading.

How to Make the Paper Plate Paddle Craft

 

I love functional crafts that will achieve meaningful outcomes for my student’s progress on goals. SLPs don’t have a ton of time OR money to prep extensive crafts. You probably have everything on hand or can get for cheap. Here are the supplies I used:

Amazon affiliate links are included for your convenience. I get a small commission when you purchase using this link. 

Have your students decorate their paper plate with circles using the dot markers. You can also have them glue or write their speech words or other language targets on the plate.

Glue the jumbo popsicle stick on the back of the paper plate. You can also glue a word list on the back for the child to reference while practicing in the session or at home for additional practice. The word lists I often use come from my Any Craft Companion Pack. 

Tips for How to Use the Paper Plate Paddle Craft with Speech Sound Disorders

Use the dot markers to keep your students engaged with their speech sound productions. Have your student decorate the paper plate with dots before creating the paddle. To make sure you get lots of repetitions in a session, you can have your students say their sound/word for every dot they make on the plate. Or, you can have your students drill five words/sounds per dot.

Sometimes, if my students struggle with waiting or if they take a long time to make dots, I will drill for 1-2 minutes and then let my students put 5-10 dots on the paper and repeat this until the paper plate is fully decorated.

Or, if you don’t have time for crafts, you can make the paper plate paddles and use while the student practices a word and then hitting the balloon up in the air.

Tips for How to Use the Paper Plate Gumball Craft with Speech Sound Disorders

Using Your Paper Plate Paddles for Speech Sound Disorders

The fun really begins when you have the paper plate paddle completed. Blow up a balloon and have students practice their sounds while they keep the balloon in the air. Of course, you can always use this to cover a lot of goals especially for our friends working engagement, joint attention, expanding functions of communication (uh oh, fell down, get it, whoa, high, drop, etc.)

You can give your student one target word to focus on that they can say as they hit the balloon. Or, you can have your student do drills for 1-2 minutes and if they got 20 productions, let them have a movement break to see if they can keep the balloon up in the air for 20 hits.

To help with transitioning between getting to hit the balloon with the paddle and practicing, you can glue words on the back of the paddle (I have an  Any Craft Companion Resource with targets all ready to go.) Onc they say all of the words on the back of the plate, they get to use their paddle.

Send this craft home with your students for additional practice with a balloon. You can direct your parents to blow up the balloon and use the paddle to keep the balloon in the air while they say their speech productions.

Speech Sound Resources to Use with the Paper Plate Paddles

For your students working on speech words at the word and structured sentence level, use my visual sentence starters to help your students get that repetitive practice while creating this craft.
