Time to take advantage of the fact that I have a constant wheeling accessory, and decorate it up for my favorite time of year! CHRISTMAS!! Don’t waste your time trying to find decorations made specifically for wheelchairs; the few things I did find were crazy expensive. So I just came up with my own, and it cost less than $10 total. You guys, they blink!!!
Here’s the lights I used. I just got them from Walmart; they’re battery powered (AA batteries, nothing hard to find) indoor/outdoor light strips. Less than $5 each so I just bought one for each wheel!
I wrapped the cords around the spokes and cut small strips of duct tape to hold them in place! The battery pack is secured by its own wire and a little duct tape, right at the center of the wheel so it won’t move much. I already tested it out wheeling around the park and, it’s AWESOME! One little press of a button and I’m a bright, wheeling, Christmas-cheer spreading machine! 🙂
My kids think it’s pretty cool, too. Hooray! Merry Christmas!!!
