Looking for Projects!

November 24, 2009

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.

    Great idea! How many kits need to be made?

    15 at a time. Not everyone can finish a kit, but everyone should get one.
