ORAL MOTOR ACTIVITIES

STRAW RACES – have your child pick out a Pom Pom color then have their partner, or you pick out a different Pom Pom color. Next pick out a straw color each. Last place a dot or a finish line for your Pom Pom race. Whoever blows their Pom Pom to the finish line first is the winner! 
 
BLOW KISSES – have your child purse their lips to make a kiss face and blow kisses. This will increase their lip awareness, endurance, and strength. 
 
BLOW BUBBLES – this will increase your child’s lip and tongue awareness, strength, and endurance. This activity will also help your child work on their breath and breathing. 
 
USE A MIRROR – look in the mirror and have your child copy your facial expressions. Make it a fun game of “Simon Says.” Mirrors are great for visual feedback. 
 
LOLLIPOP – have your child suck on a lollipop to increase their tongue and cheek awareness.
