Free Accessible Playing Card Holder




Playing cards can be difficult for people without good fine motor control. Often, holding the cards is a more significant challenge than the game itself.

This design was at the intersection of "free" and "quick." The only supplies needed are two discs and two paper clips.

Step 1: Stack

Stack the first two discs you can find.

Step 2: Clip

Clip the discs together through their spindle holes. Put the two clips in opposite directions.

Step 3: Spread the Discs

Slide the discs apart until the clips offer resistance. This will provide a gap to slide cards against.

Step 4: Play!

Slide in some cards and have at it. The design can hold pretty large hands, but if cards are falling out, add clips for more tension.
