Don’t we all want a catchy Halloween activity for our kids that we work with? Some say it is the most popular holiday. I believe it since kids are already talking about their costumes and planning parties. I saw a pink horse costume at a 5 year-old’s house today that is ready for the 31st. The only problem there is that sometimes when you plan this far in advance, kids change their minds by then!
As I was reading some of my favorite speech therapy sites today, I came across a site that I contribute to, Pediastaff, and their Pininterest, an online pinboard for “Halloween Therapy Activities and Treats.” They have assembled more that 250 activities and treats to use with your kids in speech therapy activities. They linked to one of my articles about how to prepare for Halloween with a child on the autism spectrum. See if you can find it. Hint: look for Nemo:) Anyways, they have cute ideas for Letter Printables, Shadow-making puppets, Candy Corn Cupcakes, Reading Rockets recommended Halloween Books, and Social Stories for Halloween. Take a look from this wealth of ideas assembled by Pediastaff.
