3 Quick and Easy Easter Speech Therapy Activities You'll Love

3 Must-Have Easter Speech Therapy Activities 

3 Quick and easy Easter Speech Therapy Activities that are a must-have this spring for preschool and elementary students! SLPs love the ability to target multiple goals at once whether it's language, articulation or fluency, making them ideal for mixed groups. #speechsprouts #speechtherapy #Easter
Open-ended Easter game for easy speech therapy sessions 

Pull out a holiday activity and your speech therapy groups perk right up and get excited to participate. You love them too, but with a bulging mixed caseload and precious little time to prep, you need activities that are not only engaging but also super-versatile. No-prep simple or grab and go easy. Yes, please. So here you go...


1. My very favorite no-stress holiday activity is ... Bingo Riddles!

My Bingo Riddles games are great as a print and go activity, but I suggest you laminate a set to re-use. I promise you will want to use these games over again.

I've got you covered for quick and easy Easter-themed sessions, plus I've created Bingo Riddles games for five more holidays and all four seasons. Play the Easter Bingo Riddles game with bingo chips or try jelly bean markers for a fun treat.

Spring Bingo Riddles is a fun holiday alternative if you don't do Easter activities at your school.

Here's the awesome twist that makes this game so engaging...


Each Bingo Riddles game includes rhyming riddle cards for the vocabulary pictures. Rather than simply calling out a word, you read the riddle, adding a fun challenge as students guess the answers.  Don't worry, you can still show the pictures for younger students.

"Shaped like a bunny or chick, marshmallow in heaps. You'll eat us quick, because we're yummy _____." Can you guess the answer?

You can easily target listening, inference, vocabulary, rhyme and articulation as you play. You can even have students take turns reading the clues for sentence-level articulation opportunities.

Sweet comments I've received:

* This activity is so wonderful! The kiddos loved being challenged with riddles but also playing a fun game of bingo. So many language and articulation opportunities!

* This is the 2nd year I've used these, and I had to write a review on this product because I love it so much. I have used it with preschoolers, 6th graders, and all the grades in between.

* My kids begged and begged to play!

Do you have a really hard time fitting in make-up therapy?


 Shhh, I'm going to let you in on my secret.... Bingo Riddles are my favorite activity for managing not only mixed speech therapy groups and in-class therapy, but... wait for it... large-group make-up therapy too! There are 30 gameboards, so you can use it with any size group and across grades while you target multiple goals at once.


2. Next up is a quick-play open-ended Easter game for any age or goal.


You'll love how easy it is to target multiple goals at once with this fun Easter Vocabulary game. Language prompts are included, or use it open-ended for any target.

Spring Speech Therapy Games: St. Patrick's Day, Easter


Be the first to collect the letters to spell Easter and you'll win!  Simple and engaging, this game will be a favorite. Try popping the cards in an Easter basket or bucket to draw from or put them in Easter eggs for even more fun.

There are actually 3 games in this super-versatile resource.


One for St. Patrick's Day, one for Easter, and one for spring. Each game has cards for 4 players. Play open-ended or use the included page of vocabulary and themed questions for language development.

I use this game with preschoolers and non-readers too.I've included directions on how to make a letter template so preschoolers can match the letters, making it a great early literacy activity as well. Find it here: Spring Speech Therapy Games: St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Spring

Easter No-Prep Speech Therapy Activities- Mixed Group Magic!

If you haven't seen my huge mixed group magic packets, you are in for a treat. My kids love them. 

Mix and match any one of the 62 different fun activities with any goal. There's a variety of activities great for pre-k through 5th grade, so you can use it across your caseload. Choose a color by number, mystery squares, dot to dot, paint a scene, a dot marker page or one of each for your group!

See the little empty box in the upper right of the page? 

You can paste any one of the Easter-themed Yes-No and WH questions quick lists included in the packet, or just write in your own prompts. Any activity, any goal, all no-prep. It doesn't get better than that!

Find  Mixed Group Magic Easter Speech Therapy Activities here. 

To make it even easier, I created additional Quick Lists for receptive language, expressive language, and articulation.


You can pop one of these handy little lists of prompts on almost any activity you have. I love these for data and progress-monitoring too.

These activities are ideal for mixed groups.

I rarely get to see homogeneous groups, because my caseload is just too large. Someone is usually working on language, another couple students on articulation, maybe someone else on fluency. Mixed groups are tricky, but these three Easter activities are terrific for mixed goals in groups.

You can use these Easter speech therapy activities in teletherapy too.


As I write this post, we are in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic and many SLPs (including myself!) are scrambling to find engaging materials for teletherapy.  I have updated my terms of use to allow for distance learning and teletherapy needs.

If you're using a teletherapy platform that allows students to "annotate" or draw and type on your screen share, there are several ways to use these materials.

Easter Bingo Riddles: You can play with 3 students with just one board. Take a screenshot of a bingo board. Have each student guess which direction the first bingo will be...diagonal, horizontal or vertical. Share the screenshot and have your students mark off the pictures as they solve the riddles. If they picked the direction of the first 5 in a row, they win!

Spring and Easter Speech Therapy Games:  There are 2 boards per page in the file. Share a screenshot for 2 players. You can pick the letters out of a bucket for your students. What will it be? The student can then type the letter on their board. First one to spell Easter wins.

Easter Mixed Group Magic Quick List Activities:  Share your screen and students will love coloring in the color by number or mystery squares as you talk about their goals. Use a pencil tool for the dot to dot pages or draw your way through the mazes. There are plenty of possibilities with this pack.
