“DO IT YOURSELF” ENTRYPURPOSE: To create a communication can for use with children with intellectual and communication disorders. Pringles Torengos (potato chips) come in a triangular shaped can. Empty and clean the can and remove the label. Cut a piece of self-stick felt (available at most craft stores) to cover the outside of the can. This creates the communication device or choice board. Attach two-inch communication symbols (made with Boardmaker software; see entry) with Velcro hook attached to the back of the pictures. Because the can has three sides, three sets of messages can be ready to view or choose from. As the can has a lid, the symbols can be stored inside the can until ready to use. MATERIALS: Pringles Torengo can, self-stick felt, Velcro hook, and BoardMaker communication symbols. TOOLS: Scissors and computer with BoardMaker. SKILLS REQUIRED: Cutting and assembly. TITLE: Communication Can. JOURNAL: Ideas to share: Tots n’ Tech. Idea submitted by Maureen Schepis, North Carolina.
