Library/Facility BACKPACK - Reminiscence Therapy - Handyman DVD with Photo & Activity Cards


We have added a backpack for our Autumn Collection to assist those who want to build their own kits.  The front pocket houses both the DVD and Photo/Activity cards, but also had a large main pocket to add complimenting items such as books, puzzles, figures, tactile objects or other items.  There are also two smaller zipper pockets, one on each side.  It will also ease in the shelving of the kit in libraries or on your book shelves.  The backpack is the perfect addition to the kit when it will be checked out by patrons or travel between facilities.

Favorite Things is a series created for the enjoyment of those with dementia, their caregivers and family in order to provide comfort and inspire connections and conversation through reminiscence.

Through reminiscence we find comfort in our favorite things and form connections with people and the past.  The Handyman Collection brings with it the fond memories of home ownership and the hard work of upkeep.  Whether crafting a heirloom piece of furniture, or pulling weeds, each experience is an investment in time which makes your house a home.  If you learned to change your own oil, or helped out in changing a flat tire, share experiences while reminiscing.

The Handyman Collection features Yardwork, Woodworking, Family Mechanic and Home Maintenance.

Favorite Things Companion Photo Cards - They accompany the Handyman DVD and can be used independently from the DVD. The set includes 32 double sided photo cards (8 double sided cards for each of the 4 Handyman Collections). In addition to the 32 photo cards you will receive 8 double sided companion activity cards which include activity options, Q&A, trivia, and conversation starting ideas for a total of 16 activities. The cards are of high quality stock and laminated for extra protection. The extra large cards measure 5 x 7" each with rounded corners.
