I've done this with old Christmas cards and A4 pictures of things my residents like tractors, cats, flowers etc...
They love doing them.

Great ideas Siobhan, yes - it's a really versatile activity, isn't it!

Love this idea. Have tried it and both people have responded well to enlarged photos of themselves. Am now preparing to try with old calendars and familiar items such as tractors and animals. Regards, Glenda

Hi Marina, Thank you for the feedback. I am glad it worked for you.

I did this activity with the Royal Wedding pictures, but cut only in 2 pieces (different shapes). I jumbled them up and placed in middle of table, when I come back all the pictures are put back together. Great activity;. Gives residents something to do on their own while you are doing another activity. Very good for encouraging residents to chat and do something together. Marina Secure Dementia Wing.

I love this idea as a 1:1 session. Could get family members to provide enlarged pictures of themselves, then the face is someone the resident may recognise.

Good idea, I have also used calandar pictures of scenery, famous buldings or animals and cut them into puzzles, vary how many pieces depending on your level of residents, have used for 1;1 time and small groups
