Build a Bug Reinforcement Activity
I love finding easy and fun therapy activities to share with you, so when I saw this idea on Pinterest, I knew I had to let you know about it. It’s easy for little ones, but can also be used with older students. Plus, it’s an adaptable and easy craft that can be used as a reinforcement activity with just about any therapy goal. Use it together with spring, garden, or picnic themes!
What you need:
- construction paper or cardstock in multiple colors for bug body parts and for background paper for each student
- hole punch
- glue sticks
What to do:
- Cut some of the paper into circles and semi-circles in a couple of different sizes. I traced around two different sized cans for mine. A large circular paper punch would make this even faster.
- Cut small strips of paper to use for legs, antennae, or stripes.
- Use a hole punch to make small circles for eyes and spots.
How to use it:
Give each student a piece of paper as a background for his/her bug. After each correct answer or articulation production, let the student pick a bug piece. While waiting for their next turn, allow students to glue their bug pieces to their background paper.
