Birds can be a great theme for a creative session. Begin by asking your residents a question such as ‘What’s your favourite bird?’
Next, talk to your residents about their memories of birds, the sounds different birds make, and about the different sayings that feature birds:
‘Like a duck to water’
‘Wise as an owl’
‘What’s good for the goose is good for the gander’
Any words, memories or stories can be displayed on paper, written into a short poem or made into a bird-shaped mobile.
