Activity Ideas

  • Laces can also be used for plaiting - attach 3 laces to one of the largest wooden pieces for stability.
  • Thread the laces to make patterns i.e. cross stitch, zig zags, running stitch. These learnt stitches can evoke past memories of family sewing.
  • Place an LED safe tealight inside a house for a pretty flickering effect.
  • Use with our Wooden Family of 6 dolls to make a proper village scene. Or Farmyard Animal Set to create a farm. Add little flower gardens and fences made from wooden craft sticks.
  • Build a scene with other materials like paper mache, glitter card, dried flowers, modelling clay add toy cars and mark out roads - this will encourage residents to add to the scene, talk about it and touch and move the items, therefore enhancing well-being, conversation and creativity.
