We’ve had an uplifting week of games, crafts and music here at Lulworth House Residential Care Home.
Nursery children visit our Home
We love welcoming nursery children to Lulworth and our recent young visitors from a local nursery interacted eagerly with our residents which was lovely to see.
The children loved playing an alphabet and picture game and were very good at giving choice to our residents as they played together. The game started with a child offering a box of alphabet blocks to our residents to choose from, then the children gathered in a group to learn which alphabet block related to each picture on the board. Our residents loved it when the children were encouraged to clap to celebrate each others win in the game.
The second game started with the children offering a bag of rubber animals for our residents to choose from, then asking why they liked that particular animal. For the next stage of the game we wrote the starting letter on the back of a picture of the animal and the children copied the letter on a large piece of paper as a group exercise. It was super to see them so engaged and concentrating.
We also enjoyed some singing together, which always brings so much joy. Our favourite finale song was finished with the actions to ‘Row Row Row Your Boat‘. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their time together.
Easter egg painting
As Easter is fast approaching, we thought we’d get creative with some seasonal arts and crafts. Our residents were engrossed and relaxed as they painted and decorated eggs for Easter, using a variety of colours, ribbons and decorative gem stickers. The session encouraged our ladies and gents to chat to each other in a group about Easter and the Spring. We are delighted with our finished eggs!
Our talented pianist
We have very much enjoyed listening to one of our residents play our piano recently. We have encouraged her to show us her musical skills and entertain us with her cheerful smile and natural talent. A real treat for us all.
