For Ground Hogs Day
Play with shadows using your hands and a bright light. A portable lamp or a flashlight will do.
Shine the light on your hands or resident's hands so that the shadow of their hands falls on a smooth surface like a wall or table. Invite all to move their hand closer to the light and farther away from the light. Notice what happens to the shadow.
Have them turn their hands in different ways to see how the shape of the shadow changes
This can be a fun activity for those with dementia.
