First.....I wanted to post to anyone who knows an Autistic child!
Children with Autism like to feel where their body is.....
this can be satisfied by a weighted blanket or vest.
Margo hasn't taken to the vest at school.....
so I made her some snakes stuffed with dried navy beans.
I wasn't sure what the reaction would be.....
but felt it was worth a try!
Well......much to my surprise.....
her mom says she sleeps with it,
wears it to school
loves the weight on her shoulders!
YEA....my first HOME RUN:D
So.....I made her two more last night for back-up!
This was a little vintage picture frame
I picked up at a thrift store.
Love the way it looks
after several layers of chalk paint
(Homemade Chalk Paint:)
This little table was also painted
with homemade chalk paint!
Cute table in terrible shape.
Two coats cream chalk paint
a little sanding
clear soft wax!
So simple and so pretty!
Off to the mall we go:)
