Hi, I have been sending out paper based activity packs to our community clients, am now up to pack number 4, in the past I have sent out the paper base quilt pattern, and a small chocolate for each person (not allowed to send any food in future as not every client has had a "nutritional assessment ") does anyone else have any ideas to send something a little different, thought about sending a list of questions for each client to answer and to send back to me, like " what is the most rewarding thing about getting older, if you could go back to any age what would it be and why". would love to have any ideas about doing something different for our clients. thanks

Hi, Try this recipe-- Mix equal parts of peat moss and potting mix or bonsai soil together. Slowly add in water and mix until a consistency develops, forming a soil ball that stays together, about the size of a grapefruit/large orange. We get the moss in a block and it makes up to 10 litres of wet product, so it goes a long way. Adding some Perlite to the mix, about two handfuls to a 9 lt bucket will help keep the mix aerated for water to be absorbed. Hope this helps, Kathie.

Where in the World Quiz

I have done something similar to the above quiz, but I included some coloured photos of the landmarks and gave the clues and then the answers, clients love the visual part of the quizzes.

Community Scrapbook Quilt

I am sending out paper based activity packs to our stuck at home clients, I have included a pack of template, cardboard and coloured paper, from this activity--hopefully I will get lots back and will be able to put them together and display in our library.

I work as a social support co-ordinator for a shire, obviously we cannot have groups at the moment interacting, we have made up paper-based activity packs for our clients who wish to receive one, we do large print when necessary as well, most of my quizzes, puzzles and word searches come from Golden Carers site, we have now done over 40 packs to home based clients and will be starting on Stage 2 packs and sending them out very soon. Thank goodness there is a large range for me to choose from. Thanks.

I have done this activity with 3 different groups so far, it has been a huge success, some groups made 3-4 each.
