    Play-Based Activities

    Dessert Themed Lesson Plans for Speech Therapy

    Ice cream parlor pretend play/dramatic play: Set up an ice cream shop! Grab pretend play ice cream sets and some child size aprons! You could also easily use items from home instead of buying ice cream toys. Create cones with brown paper, and use pom poms or cotton balls as ice cream scoops! Bring in bowls and spoons from home, and have students help you make ice cream shop signs with flavors and toppings!


      Find directions for the craft HERE from the Crafty Morning Blog!

      -Mix liquid glue with shaving cream until you get "stiff peaks" in the mixture.
