Apraxia of Speech Reindeer Smash

I can’t believe Christmas is less than a month away! It’s still about 80 degrees here in Central Florida, and I’m trying to get in the Christmas spirit by pulling out all of my Christmas and winter-themed products since it just doesn’t feel much like Christmas outside!

Creating Christmas products also puts me in a festive mood. My gumball smash mats have been such a hit with my kids that I decided to create another smash mat product! These reindeer mats have been so engaging for my little friends. There are 29 smash mats included in this packet, with 5 words per mat focusing on the following word shapes:

  • 6 CV (consonant-vowel) smash mats
  • 2 VC (vowel-consonant) smash mats
  • 15 CVC (consonant-vowel-consonant) smash mats
  • 6 CVCV (consonant-vowel-consonant-vowel) smash mats


Laminate each smash mat. Choose a word, say it 5 times, and then cover the reindeer’s nose with Play-Doh! So fun! Continue until all pictures have been covered. An alternate to Play-Doh would be covering the pictures with game chips or using the magnetic chips with the magic wand. 😊
