Get creative and make a collage. It’s a great way to reminisce with families and friends, it helps with fine motor skills and it relaxes your mind. Pick a theme such as activities you enjoy or even vacations you’ve been on. You can create a picture of these memories. Watch the video to learn how to make a collage and then make one of your own.

BINGO is a game enjoyed by many! If heading out to a BINGO hall is not an option for you, this game can be adapted to play at home. BINGO can provide participants with an atmosphere for socialization without the pressure of having to necessarily converse. It also enhances mental focus and hand-eye coordination.
Using eggshells is a great way to modify traditional Mosaic artwork. This is a fun creative craft to work on fine motor skills and attention to detail.
HOY! Is an easy social game that is played in a similar fashion to BINGO. The object of the game is to be the first player to complete their card hand and yell out the word “HOY!”
