Snowman Activities for Speech Therapy and Teletherapy

Embrace the snowy months in speech therapy with a favorite winter theme– snowmen! Better yet, stash up on snowman activities that can be used digitally (i.e. without the hassle) in speech therapy or teletherapy.


These snowmen activities require no printing, no prepping, and no real snow! Just loads of opportunities to target articulation and language goals using a fun winter topic.


Snowman Boom Cards for Speech Therapy

Do you want to build a snowman... and practice articulation at the same time? It's easy to do with this create-a-snowman Boom Card activity (also available here on Boom Learning)! With 60+ sound-specific cards, you can find your students' exact targets. An open-ended card gives you something snowman-themed for working on language, too!

Language students (well, all students actually) will also love using a movable flashlight to search for the listed vocabulary items. This interactive Boom Cards deck (also available here on Boom Learning) has 3 scenes for each of the four seasons. Use the snowman picture now, and the rest can be used throughout the year. 🙌

Snowman Games for Speech Therapy

Play Guess Who.... snowman style! This snowman guessing game opens in Google Slides and is all ready to go with movable game chips. Students ask each other questions to figure out which snowman the other player chose. The PDF version can be printed, sent for homework, or used digitally with annotation tools.

On the Fox Weather YouTube channel, Bob Eckstein (a self-proclaimed snowman expert) tells the long history of the snowman. It's super interesting! Please note that the video mentions and shows an advertisement for alcohol around the 1:30 mark.
