Happy Fourth of July Weekend!
First, here’s the SAVINGS….In celebration of the day, SpeechSnacks, (along with many other SLP’s) are throwing sales in their TpT stores! If you have an Extended School Year caseload, private summer caseload or just looking to stock up on new therapy materials for the fall, this is your chance! ALL purchases made in my store between July 3rd and 5th will receive a 15% discount.
(special thanks to Natalie Snyders for creating the sales image!)
And now for the SAVORY…….
I’ve compiled a few of my favorite Fourth of July food finds from blogs and Pinterest . Not only will you save money in my TpT store, but now you can save some time figuring out what to bring to your July 4th cookout—just take a look at these tasty treats. You’re sure to find something delicious to bring to the party! (Just remember to save a bite for me!)

Let the kiddos help you create this delicious and healthy dessert—great for working on sequencing and direction following as you talk about words like “patriotic, heroism, independence and bravery!”
Ok…so maybe this one is a bit over the top, but it was too awesome not to share! If you are creative and good with a knife, you might be able to pull this one off and dazzle your guests! Check out “She Knows” blog on how to make a Watermelon Grill!!
Very kid friendly–name different types of berries, sequence the steps, and discuss why/how something turns from liquid to solid. So many delicious language opportunities!
I love these patriotic stars! A healthy, summery, take-to-the-beach treat. A great way to address direction following, executive functioning and introducing new textures! Can’t wait to try these Yummy Summer Gummys from “All Day I Dream About Food”
The “Cookin’ Cowgirl” has a great cookie recipe to share. Firecracker Cookies! These cookies are easy to whip up in a jiffy! So fun and festive and definitely easy enough for the kids to help with measuring, mixing and scooping onto cookie sheets.
And finally, what’s the the 4th o July without a good cocktail?! Check out “Skinny Mom’s” Fourth of July Cocktail. It’s a cool and refreshing drink with TWO versions: one for the grown ups and one for the kiddos–I think you can figure out which one is kid friendly and which is definitely grown up friendly!!
