  1. Hello,
    What are some fun craft activities I can do with students who have autism. I cautious about them putting supplies in their mouths.

    1. I’m not versed enough to know what might work best with children with autism, I would suggest taking any of these fabulous crafts and adapting them if you can to fit your student’s/child’s needs.
      You could try ocean ideas with larger items, maybe cut out shell shapes from sponges to paint/stamp onto blue paper to create an ocean. 🙂
