Thank you for writing in! www.pinterest.com/rwonderlin11 is my Pinterest page where I post crafts and activities I’ve done or want to try with my residents! I also highly recommend getting some activity boxes that the aides can easily set out for residents. For example, easy puzzles, a box of artificial flowers and vases for arranging, socks to sort, towels to fold, etc. are all great options for residents to do and easy to set up.
