Directions for Caregivers:
Get creative with color on the fruit and flowers coloring pages. Perfect for Thanksgiving.
Chat about what thanksgiving means to you.
Painting is an excellent social activity for groups. Chat about Thanksgiving and what you are thankful for in life. Reminisce about special foods for Thanksgiving dinners.
Early and middle-stage memory care/dementia.
Supply materials and explain how to use/mix paints. Be on hand to offer support if needed.
Add some reminiscing about Thanksgiving to the activity.
If a person is reluctant to participate, leaving a brush and page in front of them can often lead to the person picking it up and engaging after watching others paint.
Late-stage memory care/dementia.
This is an excellent activity as a passive observer if the person cannot participate actively.
