Mixed Media Collages for the Elderly

We have introduced a similar activity at my workplace , it's called SoulCollage(R) and involves using images from magazines, moving them around on a mat board until the desired arrangement is achieved and then gluing down. The result is an individual piece which we then talk about and it is especially good to use with dementia clients, we talk about what they see in the images and how they feel. It can be very therapeutic and healing.

maybe consider getting some old tools that need maintenance, oiling, sharpening etc, sorting through nuts and bolts, sanding wooden toys and children's wooden toys, refreshing old timber frames, we struggle too with activities for males in a day respite centre.
