Thank you for your great ideas, so useful and encouraging. This keeps me wanting to do better and not stuck trying just to think of things. You are a blessing to me and the residents including the volunteers! :)

Great idea Marilyn, thank you. I might do one and place a photo on the website for our colleagues to see how lovely they look.

These can also be made from collected Australian leaves, flowers etc and laminated. Take your residents for a walk, have someone carry a basket (particularly good for those with sight impairments, dementia, or in wheelchairs)and either you or others "collect" the items residents point out for you. A good way to awaken the senses, and another lovely way to celebrate all things Australian. Take them back and use them as above....
