Reminiscence arts with nursing home residents is a great way to evoke memories, inspire imagination and rouse conversations. Crafts are an easy way for seniors to stimulate the brain while having fun. In the interest of having a little fun, have made a vintage swim cap prop this week, reminiscent of floral rubber swimming caps from the 1950's and 1960's.
In the absence of an authentic vintage swim cap, I used a silver Speedo cap, hole punched flowers from card stock and glued them all over the rubber cap. Voila!
All ready for next weeks art and craft with the elderly where we will be painting vintage beach side scenes.
