We did this today, and the residents seem to enjoy it. We added in food colouring to change colour of dough for the extra visual sensory experience. Some of the Lavender Rice ended up in the Chamomile coloured dough but that’s ok, it’s about their creativity and engagement of any kind is better than nothing.
