Re: Interest/suggestions for allergy shirts (ADDED PHOTOS), timeout mats,& apron/smoc

Great ideas.

One bit of 2 cents ... on the time out mat, I would NOT write "time out" on it. Needing a time out is a normal part of life, and taking a time out does not have to be a negative punishing thing. It can be part of teaching a kid to self-regulate.

So I would make it have something fun to look at, something positive, without contrasting colors (these are stimulating, not calming). Calming monochromatic colors, maybe with a hidden pictures aspect to it. Something that invites the kiddo to gaze at it. Some varying textures might be nice too.
