Chipmunk Chompers: Favorite Therapy Find

Happy July! I hope I’m not the only one who can’t ignore a yummy aisle of games every time they go into a store. Discount stores are one of my favorites. I ran into Tuesday Morning to look for a lamp shade a few weeks ago. Instead, I came out with two new games for therapy (insert eye roll from anyone who has seen my garage full of junk lately.) I just couldn’t pass it up and the kids loved it! I loved that it was another thrifty find!

Chipmunk Chompers is a super cute game that works by setting up a four seasoned tree. Hang acorns in the tree with the letter hiding. It’s a great game to accompany summer camp themed lesson plans.

Pick a card with a word to spell. Squeeze the handle on the chipmunk to pick the acorns off the tree. If the letter matches, keep it to spell your word.

The kids (aged 4-7) LOVED this game!

The little chompers to squeeze are really cute. I used with with preschoolers and Kindergarteners working in speech therapy. They loved it and I was easily able to work on other skills such as following directions, rhyming, basic concepts, sentence development and of course alphabetic principles/phonological awareness skills.

    Hi Jenna!
    I love this game! Would you be able to list the 16 letters that come with this game? I am waiting for it in the mail and wanted to make additional cards that go with our camping theme.
    Take care and thanks for always listing such great idea/activities!!! :)
