As a speech language pathologist (SLP) who “plays” throughout the day, I’ve amassed a cornucopia of toys and games to foster the development of various speech, language, and social communication skills.
One game I recently discovered thanks to Patch Products, a toy company and creator of the magical Okay to Wake Alarm Clock, is Yeti in My Spaghetti Board Game.
Yeti in My Spaghetti Board Game is a fun game where you carefully remove one noodle at a time hoping the Yeti does not fall into the bowl of spaghetti.
Here is a description from Amazon:
- A simple, fun game for kids!
- Take turns pulling noodles out one-by-one, but don’t let Yeti fall!
- For 2 or more players, ages 4 and up
- Includes 30 Noodles, Yeti, Bowl, Rules
How Can I Use it in Speech Therapy?
Since it’s a simple game I primarily use it with my articulation and fluency (stuttering) clients. However, I’ve also played it with my 3 year olds who are new to playing board games as well as those who struggle with turn taking.
