In lieu of our regular Storybox session at Bury Art Museum , which normally runs on the second Tuesday of each month, we have decided to share more dementia friendly activity ideas here instead!
This month our theme is “The Seaside”. All of the activities require minimal equipment, and anything that you need should be things that you will have around the house, or which you could easily get from a supermarket. 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!
- Look at three seaside inspired pictures from the collection at Bury Art Museum and talk about how they make you feel.
- Handle some seashells then use them as inspiration to create simple pieces of poetry.
- Create some seaside inspired wave art using foil and paint.
