Seems easy, will it work? My daughter loves helping in the kitchen, but I am not ready to give you a knife. What a great alternative!
You could do this as a binder to help nonverbal kids who can at least point recall the day and share experiences. I would use color and text for pages like "calm," too busy," "loud", "very tiring," etc. Use sheet protectors and I do like the pocket for found treasures.
