Working with clay

Clay is a wonderful material for residents to work with. It comes in many different forms and textures, and can help exercise older people’s hand muscles.

An interesting activity is creating a picture using clay as a canvas:

  • Create a square of clay 15cm x 15cm and about half an inch thick
  • Give residents a selection of stones, shells, twigs, paperclips, whatever-you-can-find, and encourage them to push the objects into the clay, creating their own clay picture
