Hungry caterpillar - update

A little over 4 years ago I posted a blog post that would become the most popular post I ever made and it was just a little spur of moment idea of using a pringles can to make a prop for the hungry caterpillar! I had no idea how many people would love them and go on to make own, now it seems hundreds of people have made them!!! 
Here's a few examples, many of them are different and ten better than the original, mine is still going strong!!!!

Thank you for making me smile !!!!

Tinkerbell Peg Doll

I currently have a rather small but very big fan of Tinkerbell in my life and had been looking for small small (reasonably priced dolls), but instead decided to make some myself with pegs like I had done on many other occasions (Charlie and Lola, Incredibles, Superherosmore peg dolls )

But of course Tinkerbell needed a friend and so I made Terrence.
My next make is likely to be Anna and Elsa (of course)

Visual Timetable

Visual Timetables can be very useful for many children (think about it as typically developing adults we use them every day, calendars, diary's, tv schedules etc.) and even more useful for children with additional needs, particularly those relating to language, behaviour, and processing. Here is a basic guide.

Here's a simple support for BINGO song, it can sometimes be hard for children to remember how many claps/ letters this supports them in knowing. Also supports recognition of letters. 

This could be done with children's names
