Looking for Projects!
Joan works in the Special Care Unit of a nursing home; her residents live with advanced Alzheimer’s Syndrome and other forms of dementia. The kids and I have been putting together some craft kits for the folks on the unit, who really like to make things, especially projects they can share or display. These paperbag owls, which I shamelessly stole from one of the many incredibly gifted teachers at Tuxedo Boy’s school, were a big hit.
If any of you all know of projects which require only very simple cutting and the use of a glue stick, are easy to supervise, and can be readily turned into individualized kits that fit in a ziplock bag, please share! Links, memories, whatever you’ve got–they will be greeted with great enthusiasm by us, and zestful pleasure by their future makers.
