From the Author: August Update – Activity Cards Inspiration


Hello everybody,
We have been very busy with our Sing-along and now our boxed card sets to use in activities. I am currently in Darwin at the top of Australia but heading back to Perth Western Australia in just over two weeks time. I will be travelling by road in my four wheel drive towing a caravan and of course with my husband Phil a road trip of about 4,000 kilometres (2485.485 miles) through the outback visiting many remote communities on the way.

While working as an Activity Coordinator in Aged Care we had to make a lot of our own resources and allot of this was done in our own time away from work, looking on the internet for ideas and shopping for craft supplies to use in activities.

I made my own Famous Face activity which everyone thoroughly enjoyed, it took hours to research and print it out, I kept it in a file. Of course over time it became quite tatty, dog eared and unattractive. So the idea to make a Famous Face card activity of good quality to have on hand in the office to just grab and go for 1:1s or group activities at a reasonable price was made. The cards are large with a glossy finish so they can be easily wiped over and come in its own box so they can be stored away. Famous Faces from the past as well as current famous faces, facts and information printed on the back of each card about each famous person to encourage reminiscing discussions.
