Hi I’ve been asked to put together a rummage box for the residents in my care.
My manager has asked that it is not a topic rummage box but a mixture of objects.
Can anyone give me some idea’s please?

Thanks so much x

Ultimately the choice is yours
Realize that things are going to go missing from the boxes so I would not spend too much money on any one thing
Perhaps you can ask for some donations

Older kitchen utensils for women and old tools for men. Can lead to very interesting memories and stories. Go to some garage sales, or on secondhand websites.
