Lori -- if you want to color eggs with Dementia residents, try colored plastic eggs and let them put spring themed stickers on the eggs. When they are done, you can fill them with a little treat. You can try stickers with hard boiled eggs but depending on what level they are in their dementia, egg holding while decorating may be a challenge.

How do you color Easter eggs without being too messy for all Dementia residents

Hi Lori, with dementia clients it would be better to cut off easter eggs from yellow construction paper. For decoration cut strips of colored paper and also cute pictures from magazines and old calendars. Dealing with glue is not as messy as paint.

We've been doing this activity too. To ring the changes we leave the circle complete and use scrunched up tissue paper to decorate the centre.
