Color, Dancing, and Easter

We have made some beaded window charms, dyed easter eggs with baking soda, vinegar, and fizzy easter egg color tablets, had a few egg hunts, and had many  positive breakthroughs with our friend Garland who has Autism. She says anything we prompt her to say, interacts socially with hugs, hand holding, dancing while holding hands and will explore a lot of fun messy stuff in the backyard!!  We are happy to know that we are helping a little with her daily progress!

We made and added some beaded window charms

Graham and Garland have found a special bond that has made the boundaries of Autism that keep her from hugging and interacting through touch non existent when they play together!              ;)

bouncy time!

Since Garland has Autism, it is hard for her to participate in an egg hunt with eggs placed all over our outdoor play area, so I decided to place a few eggs on the trampoline for her. She loved that idea and hopped on in to collect her eggs!! She ran around them, gathered them, explored them, are some of the candy in them, and had a good time!!!!  success!!!!  

The trampoline made her hair all crazy with static, it was really cute!!
