Write a Note to the Recipient and Decorate the Envelope: There Should be Two, One for the Child with Autism and One for the Parent

Use the enclosed materials to write a card and decorate the envelope. Express your encouragement and include a hopeful message.

Decorate the Plastic Bag: There Should be Two, One for the Child with Autism and One for the Parent

Decorate the plastic bag. This is what the final kit is distributed in, make this fun and colorful for the recipient to open. 

DIY Sensory Tube

1. Find the following items:
  • Sensory tube
  • Glitter
  • Food dye
  • Glue
    *You will also need water
2. Fill the clear sensory tube with as much glitter as you’d like.
3. Next, put in 3-5 drops of food coloring. 

 *The more food coloring you add, the harder it will be to see the glitter so be careful if you have a darker color!

4. Carefully fill the rest of the tube up with water.
5. Take the glue and put one teaspoon (or best estimate) of glue into the tube on top of the glitter and food coloring. The glue is what makes the glitter move in the tube.
6. Seal the tube tightly then give it a good shake!
*Adding a small amount of glue to the lid when closing the tube helps create a leak-free seal! 

DIY Jigsaw Puzzle

Start with the puzzle assembled. Decorate the whole puzzle, filling it with color or messaging from edge-to-edge. The small sorting envelope will hold the completed puzzle. Decorate one side of the small white envelope with the same picture or message. Take the puzzle apart and put in the envelope and seal. 

Surprise Kyndness

Decorate the outside of the journal with a picture or uplifting message. Use random pages in the journal to write short uplifting messages, draw small colorful images, or create fun writing prompts for the recipient.

Decorate the Box

Use the enclosed materials to decorate the box the kit came in. Make this fun and colorful. Get creative! This is how the recipient will receive their final kit.
