3 Must-Have Easter Speech Therapy Activities
1. My very favorite no-stress holiday activity is … Bingo Riddles!
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?
2. Next up is a quick-play open-ended Easter game for any age or goal.

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
3. Print and go no-prep Easter for any goal? Here you go…

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

These activities are ideal for mixed groups.
You can use these Easter speech therapy activities in teletherapy too.
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.
