Instagram Therapy Idea of the Week! – Valentines Bug for Speech and Fine Motor Practice

This idea is inspired by Pinterest and altered for speech and language goals and therapy by the folks at the ‘Word Nerd Speech Teach’ blog. (

Start by cutting out paper hearts in several colors. Print and cut out pictures of each student’s target sounds & glue the pictures to the hearts.

Add a head, antennae, legs, and googly eyes and you’ve got an awesome Valentine’s Day bug! (Challenge your students to make their bug really long for lots of practice!). OTs can modify this fine motor craft for emotions work and more!
