Even though the holiday are over the cold weather is still hanging around, for most of us anyway.  Here are some activities and ideas to enjoy the cold the weather from the warmth of your therapy room.


1. Sequence Cold Weather Activities

Give students a cold weather activity like shoveling, building a snowman, having a snowball fight, making hot cocoa, etc. and have them sequence it. Then they can draw the steps on a whiteboard.


2. Have a ‘SnowBall’ Toss

Grab some notebook paper and crumple it up into balls. Students can answer questions or say sounds to earn their ‘snowballs’. After they earn them, they can try and toss them into a designated area or recycle bin.    If you want something cuter than paper ball these emotion snowballs would be perfect!


3. Read A Cold Weather Story

Books are an SLPs Swiss Army Knife, so many uses in one.  There are lots of books that are snow or cold weather and not holiday themed. Here are some good ones: There Was An Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow, Sadie and the Snowman, Snowmen All Year, The Mitten, The Long Winter.


4. Make Your Own Snowflakes

I saw this on Pinterest and had to include it.  I have a bunch of Borax left over from other crafts so I am definitely going to try this.  Here is the link to the activity.  This would be fun to work on predicting, sequencing, following directions, and comparing and contrasting.


5. Make Snow Slime

I did a post on making slime in speech a few back in the fall but you can totally use it for winter! Just use white glue instead of a color and make ‘snow slime’.  This was great for following directions and describing. Here is the link to that post with the instructions.


What are some of your favorite cold weather activities?

  1. Great suggestions! I have some borax laying around, too. I remember doing this when I was a little girl! Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
