Activity Ideas:

  • Pop a beating Empathy Heart inside your doll's outfit so that the doll has a realistic feel - especially for anyone suffering from anxiety.
  • Place a shallow cardboard box nearby with a couple of teatowels inside for the doll user to make into a little bed. Maybe sing the beginning of some nursery rhymes and encourage the person to sing along too.
  • Pop a few drops of sensory oil onto a hanky or an Empathy Doll Scent Bag and tuck into a doll's pocket or outfit to create a scent. Ask if the person can recognise the scent? Discuss where you might find something with that smell. Can use lavender if the person finds it difficult to sleep.
  • Leave a soft hairbrush nearby - the act of brushing hair can be soothing for an older person and will keep hands busy too.
