Make as described in the video. Don’t have your group too big. You need time to go around everyone and see if people need help. A fun social activity and the results look great when displayed.

Early and mid-stage memory care/dementia.

Make as described above and in the video. Explain the activity and bring supplies needed. Supervise and assist as needed. You may also need to give more assistance as regards cutting out and gluing.

Late stage memory care / dementia.

This can be a nice activity as a passive observer, either by watching the video or watching the activity. The person may like to help choose colors, etc., for the button flowers. “Do you like the red or blue color best?”
