Let's Play Potato Head: Apps and Activities

The Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head toys by Hasbro have been on my must-have list of therapy materials for years. I love this post from The Speech Room News titled 10 SLP Ways To Play: Potato Heads. The author shares awesome ideas for using these toys to target a variety of speech-language skills. For those who don't own a whole set of potato bodies and countless random body parts check out the Potato Head apps available from Originator Inc. These apps can be used to target many of the same skills or use them in conjunction with the actual toys. My students have a blast making potato heads to match the virtual spuds they create on the app.
