Looking for an easy way to work on speech and social skills with your kids?

Well, barrier games are one fun way to do that!

This simple free printable winter barrier game features cute snowmen for your kids to place around a winter scene. Since this barrier game uses less objects than some of my other ones, you'll find it's a great option for those kids who may need something simpler to practice their skills.

What is a Barrier Game?

Barrier games are a way to practice speech and social skills concepts by creating and describing scenes to another player. For more information on barrier games, I highly recommend reading this article about how barrier games are great for language enrichment.

Barrier games can be used to target specific skills such as:

  • Following directions
  • Listening skills
  • Prepositions (on, under, above, beside, next to, etc.)
  • Expressive speech
  • Vocabulary
  • Turn taking
Or at least, that's what we're using these games to target with my son who has autism and hyperlexia.

How to Use the Free Printable Barrier Game

To prep this barrier game, you will need at least two players. Simply download, print two copies of both the scene and the items (one copy for each player), cut the individual items, and laminate all pieces for durability (optional).

To play this barrier game, have all players sit at a table and set up a barrier (a file folder or book works great!) so that all players cannot see each other's materials. Each player takes turns placing an object on the scene and describing to the other player where to place the objects. Each player should give specific directions on where to place the objects. The objective of the game is to have identical pictures at the end. That is, all players should have matching scenes with the items placed in the same spots for all players.

Please keep in mind that I am not a speech pathologist. I created these barrier games using ideas from our son's speech pathologist as well as from researching about barrier games, what they are, and how to use them.
