Blast from the past
A fun idea for an activity…Memory Boxes! Help a person feel connected to their past by filling a box with items that they have used in years past.
For the man who did handy work fill a box with; sand paper, pieces of wood, nuts, bolts, a measuring tape, etc.
For the woman who loved to cook fill the box with; old fashion measuring spoons, a beautiful apron, a recipe book from their era (take time to read the recipes!)
This type of engagement will encourage reminiscences and evoke fond memories from the past. You’ll be surprised what you learn, have fun
