My speech-language pathologist buddy and I decided to try out my new, skinny baggies for creating homemade popsicles, using the leftovers from our smoothie making. Well, all the blended fruit ended up in the bags since no one was brave enough to sip their smoothies. Shucks.
Here are photos of our morning adventure with students in a high school program for students with autism:
|Communication--paper and digital|
|Our sample popsicle-in-the-making. The colors varied according to the fruit blends.|
|A quickly fabricated, homemade funnel for filling the popsicle bags.|
|This heavily-vibrating blender is activated by pressing down on the container. |
You believe me when I tell you that it won't hurt you, don't you???
|Pouring the blended fruit into the funnel and popsicle bag.|
|Students chose a combination of strawberries, dark cherries and bananas.|
We also added a little water to make sure it would swirl easily in the blender.
|Some students need lots of words on their communication boards.|
