With continued recommendations to maintain social distancing and patients whose parents are concerned about the vaccine I’m continuing to brainstorm games that actually include social distancing that I can use during speech and language treatment. All of these games can be used as rewards or breaks while using common speech and language techniques. Some of them, like Doggy Bags, can even be modified to include speech and language goals.
Games and Activities I’m Currently Using
- suction cup tennis
- snowball fights
- Doggy Bags – I also wrote about modifying this game for articulation here.
- Flickin’ Chicken
- beanbag toss with these beanbags and these bowls
- nerf darts/rockets or a popper and targets – I got the targets in a nerf gun pack, but I can’t find the nerf rockets anywhere! I used to get them in the Target party favors aisle.
- Brain Cells
Games and Activities I’ve Yet to Try
