Fun-To-Make Crafts For Easter Ideal For People With Dementia
Fun-To-Make Crafts For Easter looks to be a good book full of activities (for children) which could be adapted to suit aged care and people with dementia. As a former public library manager I've learnt to stop reinventing the wheel and adapt ideas to suit the situation. Children's books can be a great resource for aged care.
Fun-To-Make Crafts for Easter
Includes step-by-step directions to make decorations, gifts, and greeting cards for Easter.
Ambitious children can roll up their sleeves for some Fun-to-Make Crafts for Easter, ed. by Tom Daning. From classic tips on how to decorate eggs and design a "Goodie Basket" to fashioning holiday jewelry (a "Bunny Pin or Necklace") and mobiles, it's all here with step-by-step instructions and photos of the finished projects.

Gr 3-6-These books have 150 crafts each, with toys, games, greeting cards, and holiday decorations to make. Each project includes step-by-step directions and a color photograph of the finished item. The crafts use a variety of materials and techniques, and are indexed by type: "Decorations," "Things to Wear," etc. For example, the ladybug sun catcher in Easter is made from a clear plastic lid, red tissue paper, felt, a wiggle eye, a chenille stick, and yarn; the newt bookmark in the second title is constructed from paper and wiggle eyes. Good resources for teachers as well as children.-Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library System, Adairsville, GA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
