Therapy materials are expensive! Sometimes it takes a
little creativity a lot of creativity to plan interesting and engaging sessions without spending a fortune on materials! Because of this, many SLPs have become masters of “making something out of nothing.” The idea of “making something out of nothing” inspired this blog’s newest series of posts: Thrifty Therapy Thursday!! (I have to confess, I tried this once before and didn’t get much response– but I thought I’d give it another go now that the blog is more established…) Here is how it will work:
• On Thursday morning (the second Thursday of the month), there will be a post containing a picture and desription of an item found at a thrift store, on clearance or “salvaged.”
• Once it is posted, you will have the opportunity to comment with what you would do with the item to transform it into a useful therapy tool.
• The deadline for comments/ideas will be 10am the following Monday morning.
• A winner will be announced by Tuesday morning. The prize for posting the best idea will be the actual item, which will be sent to the winner via pony mail.
Hopefully, this will be a fun way to create a little friendly competition that results in someone walking away with a prize! The only caveat is that it only works if YOU participate!! The first item will be posted NEXT THURSDAY! If you have any questions, comment below! GOOD LUCK!!
