Hexagon lights: DIY light up toy

Create an motivating cause and effect push on light up toy for students with CVI!

TSVIs are the most resourceful and creative people! Karen Epley shared how she created a stimulating DYI light up toy for her 3 year old student who is deafblind (CVI).

Shopping at Five Below, Karen found multicolored LED hexagon ‘mood lights’. These lights turn a different color each time they are pressed. Karen adhere the four lights to an old dry erase board which she had covered in black contact paper. Press and hold the light to activate, then gently tap the light and watch it turn a different color.
