Autism and Bug Hotels.

  • UPDATE - The main upgrade is now finished. The site should now be functioning as normal, I will be making tweaks over the weekend, particularly to look of the site. If you notice something is broken or have any comments please let me know. Many thanks Matt (Lithril)

I have the privilege of working from time 5o time with young people with ASDs. These can range from mild to severe physical and learning impairment.
This week we made 40 Bee Hotels from Ash branches. Countless gypsie flowers and lavender bags.

I’m looking for ideas of activities we could do just before Christmas.

Maybe spinning on the same skills, and create gipsy fliers in different shapes, sizes and colors, create bouquets?

Christmas tree ornaments or decorations?

You are a good man giving your valuable time!

How about some of the willow cornucopia style hanging bird feeders ? They do need to be capable of seeing patterns though, and working neatly through them.
Once they've got it though, the feeders come together well, and they're a popular gift/craft sale item.

The other suggestion would be small wreaths, maybe with dried leaf flowers. They can be tied together using rushes or other natural cordage, or a hot glue gun if you're not sticking to the all natural theme.
