Paper Plate Cow Therapy Activity

Paper Plate Cow Therapy ActivityBring the farm into your sessions with this easy and adaptable craft! With a few supplies and a little preparation, it’s easy to make it come together.

What you need:

  • paper plates (one for each child)
  • white, pink, black, and brown construction paper
  • black marker
  • scissors
  • glue

What to do for each cow:

  1. Cut two ears out of white paper.
  2. Cut a large pink oval for the nose and two pink pieces to go in the middle of the ears.
  3. Cut two horns from the brown paper.
  4. Cut 4-5 small, random black shapes for spots.
  5. Have the students earn pieces for completing speech and/or language tasks.
  6. Let them glue the pieces on and draw the eyes, nostrils, and mouth with a marker.

Therapy ideas:

  • Articulation practice – Give the students a piece after correct productions of their target sounds.
  • Initial /k/ or /m/ sounds – Give the students a piece for each correct production of “cow” or “moo”.
  • Language skills practice – The students earn a piece of their cow for completing each language task (e.g., naming four farm animals, describing an animal using adjectives).
  • Counting practice – Each time the students add a spot, they count how many are on their cow.
