Paper Plate Lion Activity for Speech Therapy

Paper Plate Lion Activity for Speech TherapyMake this adorable “Speech Lion” with your students that are working on /l/ and then send it home for carryover!

What you need:

  • small paper plate
  • any color of paper
  • scissors
  • glue
  • googly eyes
  • beans/macaroni (for the lion’s nose and mouth)
  • stapler (optional)

What to do:

  1. Cut speech bubbles out of the piece of paper and write target words on them.
  2. Glue the eyes, nose, and mouth on the back of the paper plate.
  3. After the child practices a word, glue its speech bubble to the outside edge of the paper plate. You can staple it if you don’t want to worry about it falling off or not drying in time.
  4. When you are finished, send it home with the child for carryover!
