The best speech therapy is engaging, hands-on, and addresses IEP goals. These cupcake play dough smash mats do all of these things! Students use play dough to frost cupcakes during this interactive therapy activity. Articulation practice has never been so sweet!

Frosting Cupcakes

59 print-and-go cupcake mats targeting 23 phonemes, verbs, plurals, emotions, rhyme, and 1 blank play dough mat to personalize. These play dough mats are used to engage children in interactive fun while working on speech sounds and providing fine motor practice as well. I have used smash mats while co-treating with occupational therapy and the OT loved this play dough product as well!

I often instruct children to produce each target word 5-10 times before "frosting" the cupcake with play dough. After children finish frosting all of the cupcakes, I let them decorate with craft rhinestones, sequins, or beads. Then, we invite “friends” (stuffed animals) to join us for a party! These play dough mats have been wildly popular among the children I work with, and I hope you find the same success with them in your speech therapy room!

This cupcake resource is great for birthdays, Valentine's Day, or after reading If You Give a Cat a Cupcake! Then again, is there ever NOT a good time for the cupcake theme in therapy?? :)
