Mother’s Day Speech and Language Activity

Fox Therapy Services • THE BLOG •

With Mother’s Day around the corner what better way to celebrate Mom than to give her flowers. Here is a fun activity to help celebrate Mom and work on speech and language too!

What you will need:

  • Colored construction paper, any color will do
  • Buttons. Lots of buttons!
  • Bottle of glue
  • Popsicle sticks for stems
  • Green paint or marker to color stems
  • Get creative!


Speech Practice

Is your kiddo working on a particular sound?

Write their practice words on a piece of paper and put buttons on top of each word. Have them practice the word five times, or as many times as they pick, before gluing the button down. 

Once they are successful in words you can have them make up phrases or sentences using those practice words.


Language Practice

Is your kiddo working on increasing the lengths of their sentences?

Keep all the buttons near you and have your kiddo request buttons by color or by how many. You can start with ‘Want button’ and to increase the length of their sentence you can model ‘Want red button’ or ‘Want two buttons’. 

Once your kiddo is successful using 2-3 words you can expand and introduce other ways to request. For example, ‘Can I have a button?’


With warmth and gratitude,

The Fox Team
