I originally cut up a container to make a shape sorter for a blind individual. He pulled the round, triangular or cube shapes from Velcro backings and inserted them into the corresponding holes. But he got bored after a while. So, I cut a hole in the center of the same white container to wedge a tube. This functions as a ring stack. The rings are easy to cut from container lids, other plastic containers or purchase them. Finally, I attached a strip of fabric to the top of the tube for stringing small rings or any objects that have holes in them.

This client is blind and non-verbal but understands directions and has very good fine-motor skills. I love giving him variety, especially when there is some problem-solving involved.
