Materials Needed:
·      Ice cube trays for graded up adaptive equipment
·      1 Styrofoam block
·      Hot glue sticks and hot glue gun
·      Suction cups to secure ice cube trays to table
·      Playing cards

Place ice cube trays upside down on table.  Place the individual playing cards on the edge of the ice cube tray as pictured below.  Enjoy the card game!

Stacked Adaptive Card Holder for Kids Instructions:
1.     Turn 3 ice cube trays upside down on the table.
2.     Use hot glue gun to glue each long edge of tray to the bottom tray below it creating a staggered step.  Place the individual playing cards on the edges of the trays.
