By Rosemarie Griffin

Summer will be here before we know it! I have gathered some of my favorite summer craft ideas from some amazing SLP’s to get you through the end of the school year and start the summer off right!

Summer Speech and Language Craftivity: Speech Pops

Target TONS of articulation and language goals with this 77 page simple print, color, cut and glue Summer Themed popsicle craft. Upon completion of this craftivity with a group, all will be unique creations, perfect for a Summer themed bulletin board outside your room! This simple worksheet turned craft is a great minimal prep activity for this time of year.

I love functional crafts in speech therapy! Working on following directions that students hear frequently throughout their day is a necesssary skill. Cutting “around” and not “across” could mean the difference in creating or destroying their masterpiece resulting in a frustrated teacher and student.

Parents request activities to work on at home. These can be hung on the refrigerator and reviewed often!

These speech and language craftivities that are perfect for MIXED GROUPS require minimal preparation but allow for multiple repetitions and extension activities. This SUMMER themed craft is a great accompaniment to a SUMMER themed book or speech and language activity.
