This project is a bit of an experiment, and not sure where, or how far it will go, but I'm quite excited about the possibilities. A care home I have worked in on off for fifteen years contacted me again, after a break of some three years, interested in xmas craft activities.
Part inspired by Kate Brookes's sock puppet project, we've started making pompoms (a craft they had all done previously) and I have taken photos of them making them, to give the pompoms to the stay and play group. I photoed (with consent) the children playing, and me and Freya came back to the home with photos this Thursday. All good feedback from children, parents and the old people. Next week we will start on making sock horses at the old people's home for a race at the stay and play. I'm also planning to do art and craft activities in the stay and play to give to the old people.
