The objective of this activity is for clients to have fun and be ‘successful’ at the activity.
If they think they made a mistake, offer new stones. Facilitate and adapt craft as needed; choose stones with enough space for decorations; steady wobbly rocks with a little clay.
This is a creative project so every project is ‘right’. Instruct clients to assemble stone designs on the table before gluing or piling together.
Turn projects into fridge magnets, or computer desks mascots, and other gifts.

Celebrate Grandparents Day by recruiting willing staff to form a chorus or a quartet to sing this song to residents on their special day.
This is a lovely, calming and creative activity for the elderly using smooth river rocks and pebbles. These decorated pebbles are perfect small gifts to give to friends, families and volunteers.
Singing is a favourite activity for many people and if movements are added with the hands and arms then singing can also become a gentle exercise actitvity.
