DO IT YOURSELF ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To provide a one-year-old child who is blind with the opportunity to explore different textures. Squares of fabric of varying textures are sewn together into a quilt. To provide additional textures, fabric paint is used to create thick dots on a square and beads are sewn in a pattern on another square. Jingle bells can be sewn between two or more of the squares to provide auditory stimulus. Personal items from the child's family also can be attached to individual squares so that a square represents a family member. Language development activities can be built around each square. DIMENSIONS: The quilt described is 4 x 4 feet. TITLE: This Tactile Quilt Is No Wet Blanket (in Springboard). AUTHOR: Haskell, A., PT. JOURNAL: RE:view. REF: Vol. 35, No. 4, Winter 2004: p. 163.
