I have just made one the these scrapbooks after seeing this idea the other day. I got my residents to find any pictures to do with the Royals then we glued them into the book they have loved it.
now working on the Olympics so when ever I see an article I grab it. great idea not too stressing for high care residents and they can keep at it when they feel like it.

what a great idea - you are the first night shift worker that actually does something for the residents (instead cleaning and documentation) etc. Love it and might try that myself :)

Great idea..I have used calendars from the Reject shop and they have beautiful pictures in them too and for want of floral pictures Better Homes and Gardens magazines have great ones.

I use calendars, I leave posters on pin up boards around December requesting everyones old calendars. I laminate them and use them for place mats, I put them up on the pin up board in the residents lounge which I change every time I go in, it gives them something new to look at, I make the books as suggested, and I also use them for reminiscence.

Thanks Kelly-Anne - re Recycled Magazine Scrapbooks. I have made folders with plastic sleeves of pictures i've used from out of date calendars bought from the dollar shops. They are amazing. I have folders of Dogs & puppies, Cats & kittens, Blooms, Australian Flora, Aust Fauna, Aust Landscapes, Aust Icons, Spiritual verses, Dolls, Vintage cars, Birds, Teddies, Aboriginal art, Friendships, Christmas and many more. I leave them scattered around the activities area and it's very rewarding to see residents just paging through the folders sharing their pictures and talking about it with each other. The folders also come in handy for reminiscence sessions, as you can see from the titles. Look out now for the bargains on the 2014 calendars! MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!!!!
