Is your toddler finding it difficult to articulate certain syllables? Are you looking for activities to enhance your little one’s speech proficiency? If yes, then read the article below for more on what is articulation disorder and some interesting articulation activities for toddlers.
Articulation is the ability to produce clear speech sounds with the help of the tongue, lips, teeth, jaw, and palate.
What Is An Articulation Disorder?
An Articulation disorder is the failure to make appropriate speech sounds. It is a motor disorder and can affect people of any age. But they are quite common in children as their articulators are still in the developing phase.
Articulation disorder can involve one or more of the following speech errors.
- Difficulty in pronouncing certain alphabets.
- Deleting certain sounds at the start or end of words.
- Making sound errors such as substituting w for r, ‘th’ for ‘s’ or ‘f’ sounds.
- Distorting certain sounds.
- The tendency to add an extra sound to a word while pronouncing it such as ‘h’ sounds.

3. I Spy The Word:
Draw or write words that have target sounds on pieces of paper, fold them and hide them all around the house. Whoever finds the most words and articulates them correctly wins the game. It is a great articulation activity if you have more than one toddler.
4. The Snack Bowl:
Take two snack bowls. Fill one with a mix of candies and healthy treats. Use the other bowl to place target words/images. Participants have to pick one paper and say the word. For every right articulation, participants can pick a choice of snack from the bowl.
5. Guess The Word:
Participants draw a picture and others by turn have to identify it verbally. Award one point for each correct pronunciation. Reward the winner.

6. Errands And Words:
Use errands to help your toddler with his articulation practice. For instance, in the grocery store, ask your toddler to identify things that begin with‘s’ or ‘sh’ sounds. You can do this when shopping for clothes, toys or during other errands.
7. Games And Words:
There is no better time for some articulation practice than playtime. For instance, encourage your toddlers to practice target words or syllables with each throw of the ball to each other. Or practice a new target word with each push when on the swing.
8. Word Relay:
Play the game of five words for each target sound. Take up a new sound as soon as you finish the previous one.
9. Marble Tower:
Place marbles in a bowl. With every correct articulation, the toddlers get a marble to place it in a thin glass vase. The winner is the one with the tallest marble tower.

10. Word Hour:
For a specified time, say 10 to 15 minutes every day, you and your toddlers speak only words that have target sounds.
You don’t need hours of lesson preparations to help your toddler practice his articulation. Infuse creativity in everyday tasks and watch your toddler improve his speech while participating in some fun activities.
