Weighted Blanket Project
Cape County FCE of Missouri - June 2023
The Cape County FCE Clubs recently made 41 weighted blankets and 25 lap pads taken to the Autism Center in Cape Girardeau to be given to persons with autism.
In 2010 at the MAFCE Conference in Missouri we had a program on the topic of autism and how weighted blankets helped persons with autism. They had a pattern for weighted blankets and when we returned to Cape Girardeau County we planned a work day. Since 2010 we have made 1,174 blankets, 509 lap pads and 141 snakes. We have worked a total of 10,168 hours. Snakes are put around the persons neck. We give them to the autism center, schools that request them and individuals who ask for them. We had a feel good story from parents of a 4 year old child. They told us their child slept all night for the first time at 4 years when he slept with a weighted blanket. It has been a great appreciated project.
