Dress for the Weather
Description : -This is a great sensory stimulation activity to reminisce with your residents, by Kathleen Taylor.
Various clothing for different types of weather
Gather clothing for different weather conditions. (Check out the recycling centers!) Ask for a volunteer from the group, or dress yourself ie: When all decked out in galoshes, rain hat (how about those clear plastic ones that used to come from the bank!), yellow slicker, umbrella, etc... Ask residents what weather you are dressed for. Reminisce about dressing for the weather when they were younger. Remember, residents won't melt. If you have enough umbrellas, then take residents outside for a little bit even on a day when it is gently raining.
