1. Skype
Call or Skype grandchildren for a chat on International Youth Day on August 12. If they are young, you may have a friendly game online like practising opposite words; you say dark and he/she says light etc. If they are older, watch the same movie and then discuss it.

8. Drawing Course
Take a drawing course for beginners on YouTube, free of charge. You will need a sketchbook and an art kit containing:

  • art pencils, 
  • shades of gray markers, 
  • an eraser, 
  • a pencil sharpener,
  • blending stamps. 
  • You may also need some sand paper (optional)

9. Make Photo Albums
Organize old photos into an album. Most people have boxes of forgotten printed photos. Ask residents’ relatives to bring a shoebox of old photos in and an album to arrange them in. Decade-old print photos are precious and worth the effort. It is relaxing entertainment for residents and you can pace yourselves - just one hour at a time will do. Start by dividing the photos into categories: family, friends, celebrations, general.

10. Scrapbook

Create a Recycled Magazine Scrapbook or a Community Scrapbook Quilt.
