---- DO IT YOURSELF ENTRY --------- PURPOSE: To create a do-it-yourself adjustable tray for a child with severe disabilities to use drawing, coloring, etc. This DIY tray is a PVC frame with a leg in the middle to allow for angle adjustment. The tray is created from a piece of shower board which is cut to the size needed. The child is then measured and a cutout added to go around the child. The PVC frame is a little smaller than the tray itself and is attached to the tray using Velcro. A drill and screws can also be used to attach the frame and tray being careful not to expose the screws and the child get scratched. PVC was cut into the correct lengths, cutting the top bar in half and adding a joint with three openings. For the center leg, a piece of PVC was attached to the top of the tray frame. Cut several lengths that can be added for different heights if needed depending on where the tray is being used. Using a three-opening joint at the base and use a small length of PVC at the base of each side of the leg. A section of a giant pool noodle was used pad the leg. This is used when the tray goes at the child’s waist and the leg goes at an angle between his knees (the cross portion at the bottom of the leg goes under his knees, a bonus is that it keeps his legs and hips correctly positioned). Large binder clips can be added to the top of the tray to hold paper for coloring and drawing. MATERIALS: Piece of shower board, PVC tubing and three-opening joint, Velcro, large diameter pool noodle, and large binder clips. TOOLS: General tools, scissors or cutting knife, and adhesive.
