Storybox at Bury Art Museum

We normally run a monthly dementia friendly creative session at Bury Art Museum on the second Tuesday of each month – for obvious reasons it will not be running this month. It’s a popular and friendly group that we are really going to miss so we have decided to run a mini version of it here instead!

This month our theme is “Gardens and Gardening”. All of the activities require minimal equipment, and anything that you need should be things that you will have around the house. Each activity is listed below: just click the link to access the full activity.

We hope that you enjoy giving them a try and would love to hear how you get on!

Let’s Talk About Gardens: Have a look at some images of gardens from the collection at Bury Art Museum and talk about what you see.

Garden Seeds – Sensory Poem: Handle garden seeds then use them as inspiration to create a simple poem.

Making A Seasonal Bird Feeder – Make a simple feeder to hang in your garden.
