Tomorrow I will do a bread and jam activity. Slices of buttered bread, an assortment of jams for them to spread and to taste and lets reminisce about picking fruit as children, using up surplus fruit in jams, baking etc. An easy relaxed activity session.

They loved todays session. I had 8 residents 10 slices of buttered bread and 4 pots of jam. I cut each slice of bread in 4 and we spread jam on it whilst chatting about getting scratched by thorns stung by nettles etc whilst picking berries and fruit. Most of the residents could recall the big pot and the sweet smell of sugar and fruit when their mothers made jam. An hour and a bit this afternoon well spent.

Well done Jean. Socializing, reminiscing, and feeling good. Keep up the good work!
