Hello! My name is Zizi and I'm 10 years old.
I love making decorations for my hearing aids.
Here I am going to teach you how to make your own decorations!

I will teach you to make dangling charm decorations, and also twisty decorations that go around the tubes.
Also, I will tell you how I use beads and stickers to decorate my aids.

Some of the decorations are easy to make, but some are difficult and you will need a grown-up to help you.

My mum and dad help me make my decorations for my hearing aids.

I went on an NDCS First Time Away Weekend!

A little while ago I went on an NDCS First Time Away Weekend. I really enjoyed it. It was really fun. We did all these things: zip wire, obstacle course, scavenger hunt, low ropes, and more things! And in the evening we had hot chocolate before we went to bed, it was really nice. The food was yummy. But the best thing was meeting new friends and being with lots of other deaf children. It was nice to be with lots of people who wear hearing aids, because at school I am the only one with hearing aids.

Charms tutorial

Yesterday I made many new charms and on friday, when I go to my audiologist I will give him the twenty pairs that I made with my mum. I hope he will give them to other children. I made heart, stars and skeleton charms. Here are some of the charms I made and there is also a tutorial as well, I hope you enjoy it. Good luck, Zizi.

This is what you need.

you need wire, two rings (we use one half of a tiny toggle clasp, we buy them here on ebay, two tiny silver beads, charms and beads and here is how you make it:

You put the wire through the charm at the bottom of your decoration.

You twist the wire a little bit.

You add the beads you like.

You add the ring, and then twist a little bit.
You cut it close to the wire to make sure it doesn't scratch your ear.
And that's it!
