Free Music Playlists for the Elderly

Hi. In my homes we have no wifi. Is it possible to download these pieces of music into my iPad so I can use them in the homes? Thanks. Heather

I totally agree. I have even bought an amplifier for my iPad does not play loud enough for my hard of hearing residents. I all got a microphone. I love my iPad so much

The Eiffel Tower's Birthday

Why not try to use egg shells. Dye them with food dyes of different colours...after crushing them, then glue them onto the picture already drawn

St Patrick's Day Party Game

You know what I would do with this game. I would add music to it. So when they get their envelope wit their chocolate inside I would add a name of an Irish song to it...then play that song,have a wee sing a long, and a jig...and if you want add your musical instruments to it too....as we would say here in Northern Ireland"the craic will be mighty". Craic. Meaning fun

Lanterns for Chinese New Year

I love it. Vi had a residents family member complain at our annual inspection that the craft was "demeaning to the residents". Hope these will not go down as too childish.. As we all know it is sometimes very hard to get some elderly folk in residential Homes ,with several types of difficulties to actually do craft. I have done this job for 14 years now...this is my first complaint!!!
