As the saying goes - One Person's Trash is Another Person's Art - Scavenger Collages can be made of almost anything you find or intend to throw out.  This is also a great activity for men in nursing homes.

We did the scavenger picture yesterday it worked really well. I collected all the junk drew the template and left Hubble to it. When he was satisfied I took a photo tipped all the junk off and then I recreated it using glue ,my husband Hates getting messy

a step further could be to ask the residents if they would like to spray paint their piece in a particular colour
