Free downloadable activity: Happy Valentine’s Day!

20130212-221205.jpg

Valentine’s Day is a great festive day to talk to kids about showing love to family and friends.  Today, my kids made this craft cupcake in therapy. It’s super easy and fun! I used mostly materials that I already had lying around at home:

  • Muffin liners
  • Styrofoam balls (this I got from a $2 shop)
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Cellophane
  • Aluminium foil
  • Sticky tape
  • Scissors

One of the kids was working on the /k/ sound, so the word “cupcake” was a perfect one to sneak into the conversation! All my kids, from ages 3.5 to 10 were excited to make this. I used this activity in multiple ways: for example, as a reinforcer in a board game for the kid who was working on speech sounds, and as an activity to get my 5 year old kid with language disorder to sequence steps and remember the materials used for the cupcake.
