Directions for Caregivers:

Watch the video tutorial and design your cards together.

Watch the video tutorial together or explain the activity. It is nice to use leaves that you have gathered and dried yourselves.

Early-stage and middle-stage memory care/dementia. 

Do this as a one-on-one activity and offer assistance as needed. Bear in mind that pressed leaves can be quite brittle, so only do this activity with people who can be quite careful in handling fragile objects.

About this Activity

It is Fun to Gather and Press Leaves Before Making the Card.

You can also look up the leaves you collected and identify the trees or bushes they came from.
