Bring your gnome to life by adding  colour and a facial expression. Specially fired ceramic allows for decoration using acrylic paint or marker pens.

Ready to go activity that is ideal for care home activity coordinators.

Suitable for all ages and abilities - especially older people.

Why not create outside in a garden or park - take a damp cloth for any spills. When they are all completed, why not get people to give theirs a name and write it on a plant marker and then put them around the garden with their name next to them.

Activity can be extended by maybe having a discussion about whether anyone/family member used garden gnomes in their own garden. Discuss what makes a great garden and what games did people enjoy playing as a child e.g roly poly down a hill/ kiss chase/ tag/ cowboys and indians etc.

Kit includes:

  • 12 ceramic gnomes (unpainted)
  • Full instructions

Poster paints can be used but must be sealed with varnish if gnomes are to be kept outside.

Size: (h) 11.5cm. Set of 12 gnomes. Please note: decoration materials are not included.
