3 FUN Speech and Language Activities For a Snow Day
By Lauren Turk, MS, CCC-SLP
THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS FRIGHTFUL! Not only is it snowing, but it is hard to be trapped inside while I try to get some work done with my two kids running around the house! Surprising, my oldest has so much energy since she has been home sick for 5 days (or maybe not so surprising). She is finally fever free so far today. I think a long sickness and a snowstorm warrant an extra day at home anyway, but after so many days of being house bound, I had to come up with some activities and FAST! So, this morning, I started thinking of some ideas to keep the kids entertained. Below you will see what I came up with! If you are a speech-language pathologist, these activities could be applied to many goals...
We used Disney FROZEN print outs, my youngest helped identify colors and then together my 6 and 3 year old thought of adjectives for each character
Activity #3 was a sequence activity. We drew out how we planned to make our snowman and then we followed each step as we made a mini version of a snowman in our apartment from snow I collected from our roof top. By the way, I am not very good at building snowmen, so I left most of it up to the kids (Please see below)!
BEWARE- it melts fast!!
