--- "DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY ------- PURPOSE: Penny pincher touch switch enables a child to activate a toy or light by pinching two pennies between thumb and forefinger, and is useful in developing pincher grasp and pointing skills. Child activates battery operated toy or other device by pinching two copper pennies; when pressure is released, the switch turns off. The switch is made by soldering a subminiature plug to two strips of 5 inch conductor wire, and soldering a copper penny to the other end of each wire. The pennies, with a small piece of foam taped between them, are fitted into a small balloon to keep them from sliding around. SKILLS REQUIRED: Soldering.
