'Crafty Containers' is my second post ... please also have a look at my first post - 'Making Paper Flowers'
Art Therapy has been proved to stimulate the brain, stir memories and give those with Alzheimer's a much better quality of life.
Whether they are actually creating the art themselves or simply viewing it, art and crafts can bring joy to those with memory problems.
More than something to keep her occupied, our craft projects give her something to look forward to each day, reduce her agitation and keep her happy and content.
we have many other creative endeavours!
anything from margarine tubs to Pringles tubes, tea caddies & chocolate boxes!
flowers and butterflies never fail to bring a smile to her face!
for a bit of special sparkle :)
My mum's "crafty containers" keep her hands busy and stop her fidgeting. Measuring and cutting keeps her mind active.
She is at her happiest in our daily craft sessions!
I play her favourite 1940's / 50's music in the background and she sings along relaxed and happy ... loving every minute of creativity!
