What a fun way to practice your speech articulation goals and make a fun Christmas elf paper lantern craft in therapy. This is such a great way to keep those little hands busy and motivated! Craft items that you will need on hand for this project will include: scissors, glue, stapler, and crayons (or use colored paper)! I have included photo instructions on assembly. Elf templates for the lantern come in black and white and color. A boy elf is shown, but a girl elf with a cute bow in her hair is included in black and white and color as well.
Every sound in every position plus blends are included. You have 10 words for every initial, medial, and final position of words. The student will use the word strips to create the legs. The word strips are in sections by word position. The sections are: initial, medial, and final. Once the lantern is completely assembled please note that only 8 words will be seen on each leg for homework. K5 students can complete this project, but they may need help with the assembly. Depending on how creative your students get with coloring the craft, it may take two 30 minute sessions to fully complete. If you help the student by cutting out the elf shoes on colored paper or construction paper and help with assembly, the project can be created in one session.
Articulation sounds include:
S/L/R mixed blends
I have also included a blank sheet without the words so that if you have a student in your group working on fluency or language, you can quickly write down objectives for their goal as well. How adorable would the these crafts be hanging around in your room before Christmas break? Send this fun craft home for some extra reinforcement. The craft is a way to turn homework into artwork!
