Child's Special Needs
Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, Motor Apraxia
What I Made
A shark, an imagination mover, a guitar (each in different years)
How I Made It
I attach whatever is required to a comfortable sweatshirt. I usually use felt. This year the guitar body is cardboard at his request. The shark had fins and the imagination mover required just patches.
Tips & tricks
- Use regular clothes -- don't worry about their face. Make the holiday about FUN -- not what everyone else does! My son goes from house to house to see the neighbors' ceiling fans more than get candy and that's OKAY!
