Autism snack box covers

March 4, 2018

As most parents will appreciate, teaching a child to tie shoelaces, pull up zips and do up buttons can be quite a task. My friend's son has autism, and encouraging him to learn self-dressing skills can be a real challenge.


Motivation is key, and my friend had the great idea of combining a love of food with learning these skills. If only she could find a fabric case suitable to cover tupperware boxes, in which the entry point is via a set of laces, or buttons etc.


As far as we know, they don't exist! Which is where I came in. I re-purposed a tartan shirt and made this fabric snack-box cover, which has a row of poppers as a closure point. The box is meant to contain dry foods such as sandwiches and snack bars - but in the case of spillage, the cover is washable.


All being well, I'll make the others with zips, buttons etc. I hope it'll really help out!
