Make A Wish Makeover
Accessories and Textiles
Our goal was to make this room an experience for him! With lots of sights, sounds, and textures. I would like to add the rock speaker from Mom's Amazon List- which plays nature sounds- and dangling color changing lights in the teepee.
The idea of a Mural that is practically life-like really spoke to Erin and I. I would love to be sure the mural looks as real as possible.
To this, we've added fake grass, blue felt, "fluffy clouds". I know Jackson cannot necessarily feel these things by himself- but these are all sensory-worthy items to help him engage in his surroundings.
A fun idea to mark the National Parks that they have been to would be a Pin Board similar to this, and a collection of flags from each Park! Again, a life-like mural with deep, rich, natural tones would be amazing and so calming. This is the wall with the window.
We love these prints- and I saw they were also on Mom's Wish List! How fun for above Jackson's bed on the right wall as you walk in. Adding fun lights to this area might also be a good idea.
The OT emphasized the use of lights to engage Jackson. Here are some examples of items we loved, and I think we should use all of them!
Here are some fun accessories and sensory items we thought could be included in Jackson's room.
