So we all have those days when we know what we want to target, have the best prompt cards to do it, but no activity. I don’t know about you, but if I don’t have any thing extra like a game or activity to play with it, all I here is ” Are we playing a game?”, ” Can we play a game?” or may personal favorite, ” Are we done yet so we can play a game?”.  My kids need some extra oomph in their speech sessions.  So I went to the craft section at Walmart  and looked around. I needed something cheap that would be easy for my kids to play and not take a lot of time for me to make.  I saw bag of popsicle sticks, got an idea and ran with it.  This literally took me 5 minutes to do.  I colored the tips of the sticks with markers I had at school and TA-DA, Sticks ( I know, super creative name ) was born.  It’s a nice reinforcement activity for all my kids. There are five of each color and a few blank ones for ‘wild sticks’.

How to play:
Kids go around the table and after each response they get to pick a stick. The first one they pick is the color they collect. If they choose a stick that is not their color, they put is back.  First to collect all their sticks wins.

Use a solid color cup to keep to sticks in to keep kids ‘x-ray vision’ at bay

Hope this idea helps!
