“DO IT YOURSELF” ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To create a waterproof communication board that can float in the pool, bath, or water table for an individual with communication disabilities. Create and laminate the communication board, place it in a zip lock plastic bag and seal, pushing any excess air out so it lays flat. Place loop Velcro on a foam garden kneeler and hook Velcro on the back of the plastic bag with the communication board. Make sure the pictures on the communication board are facing up. Attach the plastic bag to the kneeler. MATERIALS: Foam garden kneeler (one with a cut out handle works best for the pool), communication board printed out on card stock, laminate or Con-Tact paper (Laminate holds up longer), large baggie with zip lock, and two sticky back Velcro strips (both hook and loop) cut to width of garden kneeler.
