Printable Slug Bug Game

Slug Bug has been around forever and can be a lot of fun for the whole family on road trips or even just running errands around town. This printable game board lets you keep track of how many you’ve seen. You can print one for each family member to see who can spot the most, or you can each make predictions ahead of time for how many you think you’ll see in each color, and work together to see whose predictions are the most accurate.

This game is fun, but it can also teach some simple graphing skills as well as introduce the scientific method. You can even play virtually with a friend who lives someplace else and compare notes to see if the same colors are the most common in each locale.

And if you want to throw in some foreign language practice, try putting the names of the colors in another language!

Try it with a kid-sized clipboard to make it easy to use in the car.

Going to the Doctor

For some kids, including many special needs kids, anxiety around going to the doctor can be reduced by knowing exactly what is going to happen and when. This sort of visual schedule can help kids ‘see’ their visit, and see their progress through it, in a way that helps them handle and manage the stress.

You can use this list as is, or you can edit it to make it just right for your child.

Make Your Own First-Then Boards

You can easily make a First-Then boards using The Trip Clip. A First-Then board is a visual support that works well for kids with Autism. You can click here to learn about how First-Then Boards work.

I made these boards using The Trip Clip’s hook & loop picture clips.

First, I printed out the blank boards. You can print a first-then board for free here.

Next I laminated the first-then board, and attached some hook & loop circles to the board.

After that I used the Custom List from The Trip Clip. I was able to drag and drop the pictures I wanted to use to create my picture clips, and then write the text I wanted underneath each picture. I chose to use the Big Picture Clips setting, but you can also make Small Picture Clips, or combine the two if that works better for you.

I printed out my individual pictures, laminated the sheet, and then cut apart each of the picture clips.

After that all I needed was hook and loop circles for the back of each picture, I was able to create my first-then boards, and I can re-use the board with different pictures as needed.

All of the supplies you need to do this yourself can be purchased on The Trip Clip website.
