Tools for Care Home Craft Activities
Many older care home residents enjoy working with their hands and love to create bespoke items. Many actions such as sawing wood can provide interest and engages both mind and body. Men who have enjoyed carpentry either in the home or for work can particularly like to create simple items such as bird houses or feeders.
Our Hand Saw is perfect to use for older hands and the Sandpaper Pack has varied grades of paper from coarse to fine to help give a smooth finish. Acrylic Paint is ideal to give a decorative finish to the project and will give a waterproof finish for items for the garden.
Why not get a set for your care home and get the men (and ladies of course) involved in a great tactile activity.
Perfect for painting on wood and ceramic and most other surfaces, this Acrylic Paint Tube set is so versatile. 100ml tubes of green, yellow, blue, red, white and black to mix into any colour you need.
