All for Chance

They say that little ones like and need schedules and security.  Well we are pretty much on the same schedule everyday, yet I admit to sometimes getting tired of hearing "is it lunch time yet"  "is it bath time" and so on.

So I came up with this project that I think will not only help him with the schedule, but also some security of "knowing" what is coming next, and help with his colors and numbers, maybe some word memorization, and maybe even telling time.

We have one of those huge vinyl wall clocks in the living room, you can't see in the picture but on the numbers are a very small dot of black velcro, to which I will attach the circles I made.

The circles were cut at 3.5 inches on George and the numbers are from Nate's ABC's at 2.5 inches.

And his little flip book (well it will be a flip book once all the stickles dry) was cut at 3 inch real dial size from George also.  They are going to be mounted on 3.5 inch square coasters I have and sealed with ModPodge.

All the various cuts are either from CHORE CHART or A CHILD'S LIFE (it's so late, I hope that is what its' called, if not I will fix this post in the morning LOL)  all cut at 2.5 inches, the bathtub and bed I stretched to fit a little better so I am not sure of those sizes.

Sorry about the picture quality I am dead tired after working on this for 4.5 hours and the cat was trying to walk through the stickles so I had to hurry.  Sorry that I didn't sweep the floor before pictures either, I was just too stinkin tired and my eyes were burning, back, shoulders and neck are killing me also.

This is a definite work of love. Chance will learn a lot about his schedule and it can be changed up when necessary. I have a daughter with Autism and we are all about schedules around here. This is great, thank you for sharing and being there for those little angels.

What a great idea. Kids need to stay on schedules to thrive. It also helps keep the household sane too.
