Candy Land for Speech Therapy

Candy Land is a simple game for children preschool and older. Race to the Candy Castle by pulling cards and moving up the winding track. Special cards are included for moving your cards to candy characters.

Number of Players: 2 – 4

Ages: 3 and up

Skills required: color recognition

Target: Candy Land is a basic game that can be used as a reinforcer in speech therapy to target any skill. Social skills for game play, such as turn taking and patience are simultaneously targeted.

The board has a winding track of different colored spaces. The pink spaces are named after locations like Gum Drop Mountain and Candy Cane Forest or characters such as Queen Frostine.

Players move their markers in turn by drawing a card and then moving to a space of the same color. If a player chooses a card with a location, they go straight to that space moving either backwards or forwards. The first player to reach the King’s Castle wins the game!

Using Candy Land for Kids in Speech Therapy

To accompany Candy Land I have developed a set of replacement cards. Use these card sets in place of the cards included in the original game. Each set of cards contain look a like cards with either one square or two containing a target sound in single words. Special cards are also included.

Replacement Cards are available for the following skills:

Articulation

Phonology

Fluency
