Speech Card Set Activity: What's Hiding?

Game: What's hiding?
Description: Set 3-5 cards out in front of children. Have children identify each word. Hide one card. Have children identify the missing card. Repeat.
Object: Child who has the most cards at the end of the game wins.
Materials: One piece of paper and a free card set.
Setup: Fold paper into thirds. Unfold and set upright to form barrier between yourself and children. Lay 3-5 cards in front of the barrier facing the children.

  1. Tell children (for example), "Fan, food, and feet came out to play. Say, "Hi fan!" Say, "Hi food!" Say, "Hi feet!"
  2. Wait for children to produce target words in imitation, threes, phrases, sentences, etc.
  3. Say, "Now, one of the cards is going to hide from you. Close your eyes and don't open them until I tell you to. (Hide one of the cards behind the barrier.) Now open your eyes and tell me who went hiding."
  4. The child who identifies the missing card first and pronounces it correctly gets to keep the card.
  5. Set out a new group of cards and repeat. The child with the most cards at the end of the game wins.


  1. I'm so happy to have found your blog! I have a six year old with some articulation difficulties, and a nonverbal three year old with hypotonia. She communicates mostly with ASL for now. Thank you for sharing your resources and ideas. We're going to try this game tomorrow! :o)

    1. I hope your kids enjoyed the game. It's so quick and simple and the kids really seem to like it. Good luck with your little ones!
