This a great activity for men who may exhibit problem behavior. However i have found women who can be engaged for an hour with this.

It is building,   things with pvc piping and the tees, couplings and elbows that go along with them. It is best to use 3/4 inch or 1 inche pvc  piping.

You can buy 10 foot lengths of the pvc. An employee at the store or a maintenance person can cut the pipe into 3 to 4 inch segments. The pipe segments may have to be sanded. If they are not too jagged, sanding the pieces can be an activity.

If you determine that someone might get hurt sanding, then have an employee do it.

When the pieces are ready to use, put them in a container, and let one or more residents build something.
