Drum Circle Activity for the Elderly

Hi Tess,
It's a wonderful idea; we have now started our drum circle. Like most of us the cost of
drums is way over the top so we decided to use empty large coffee tins with
the plastic top also Pringles crisps containers which also have the plastic top. These are
great for the ladies just to tap. They have decorated them themselves with ordinary gift
or crepe paper, what ever is available. Everyone has a great deal of fun and they
decided they liked to drum to 'she wears red feathers' and one or two other songs. The
drum sticks we made out of wooden batons and chop sticks, infact anything available at
the time. We dress up, ladies with beautiful head dresses and the men with a fez. Very
cheap from Amazon. Many many thanks for this wonderful idea.

Morning all, where ever we live in this wonderful world of ours. The Golden Carers is the ideal site for joining us all together.
May be a new idea. We/I have started a monthly News Letter. The Residents are the
reporters. One talks about the weather (easy in this country) a couple of the ladies give me an article on the state of the garden and whats growing and some of the wild life they see.
then articles of 'days gone by' - only a couple of lines, perhaps about their school days and what uniforms they wore. Once one starts talking they all join in.
I type/print the News Letter off and each person gets a copy and one is put on the notice board for staff and visitors can read. It has become a fantastic success so hopefully we can continue with it. Just as a pointer it's only two pages long and I try and put a couple of clip art and perhaps a photo in. Just an idea.

Hi Clare,
This is not what you asked for but wandered if "The Daily Sparkle" Reminiscence
News Paper would be of any interest. Used to find it quite helpful and it's still being
printed.

Many many thanks Talita. All done and dusted. We should have a great deal of fun with this.
So looking forward to playing with it.
A game, or rather puzzle, that my ladies enjoy is TANTRIX. It has nice bright colours
and they just love finding how to follow the colours through. (not cheap but worth it).

What would we do without the help of each other?

Bye for now,
