Every wreath will be unique, reflecting the creativity of the person making it.

Also this month, for Australians and New Zealanders: ANZAC Day wreaths. Use 2-3 egg cartons per wreath, painting each segment after cutting it from the carton. Black felt, buttons or similar are glued to the centre before attaching to the circle of cardboard, once the paint is dry.

This is absolutely beautiful Nicky. I will add this as a separate activity for ANZAC Day.

Hi Julie
Excellent idea
You can use the paint chips for many other things also

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.

I collect paint sample cards from the hardware they often come in different 3 colours on one card I cut them into egg shapes residents assemble

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.
