Social distancing activity suggestions
A few craft ideas and other suggestions to get creative
Looking for ways to get creative with all the family during these challenging times? From crafting paper chains, to helping Wallace the bear to chase the rainbow with our colouring sheet - there's lots of family fun to be had. Have a look below at our list of activity suggestions and ways to get involved.
Download and print our colouring sheet to create a lovely rainbow picture with the Scottish Autism mascot, Wallace the Bear. Perhaps you could display your picture in your window, once it's complete, as part of the 'Chase the Rainbow' campaign to signify to people that we’re all here for one another despite social distancing. It may even help bring a smile to someone's face.
Whilst at home, get creative and show your support for the autism community by making a people paper chain. You can download and print our template to cut out and decorate or perhaps have a go at making your own - you can find video tutorials on YouTube to show you how to make these paper chains if it's your first try!
We would love to see how you have been 'getting crafty' for autism so share your photos with us if you wish on our social media channels - Facebook/ Twitter/ Instagram Have a look at some of the wonderful creations our supported indivduals have been making too - click here!

COVID-19 is putting more demand on our support services while impacting our fundraising activities.
At this difficult time, donations are, as always, essential to the much needed funding of our Autism Advice Line. Our Advisors are working very hard to create these informative resources to support autistic people and their families through this uncertain time, while also responding to all enquiries to the Autism Advice Line as quickly as possible.
We would be very grateful if you would make a donation to support this vital service and help us reach more autistic people and their families when they need it most!
