I am a carer consultant for a mental health unit in a public hospital. I am holding a Carers pamper day for Carers who care for loved ones who have a mental illness. I am looking for an art therapy activity for the pamper day. Have you any ideas please.

Hi Judy,

It depends on the abilities and capabilities of your clients. Golden Carers has easy crafts and more intricate crafts. Also I would recommend you pick a theme or a date to celebrate; it is easier to organize, here are a few suggestions:

Christmas in July - Paper Stained Glass - Colouring Christmas Angel - Popsicle Christmas Star - Recycled jigsaw
June Celebrations - World Ocean Day Poster - Recycled Fish Mobile
July Celebrations - Preserved Fall leaves
Themes - World Cup - Brazilian art templates

Choose a beautiful piece of music and invite your clients to 'paint to it'. Very soothing!
