2  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Random Acts of Kindness (RAOK) and Art Abandonment / Re: Need Ideas for Crafting with Special Populations on: June 16, 2019 07:09:33 PM
Depending on their genders and ages, you might explore crafts they might have done when they were younger. Sometimes, its easier for them to tap into those memories.  Crayons often is very therapeutic because it was such a part of most all of our childhoods.  Good ol childrens clay can also work well.

One thing you might want to watch for is dexterity challenges.  I did a few zen doodling sessions at a retirement home and one fellow had a hard time drawing because his hand trembled.  Thankfully, I was able to process it as his zigzaggy lines just made different kinds of doodles.

Bingo markers can be found at dollar tree shops and there are the stamping markers that kids use.

They also respond well to fidget blankets, but Id think having them make them might be a challenge.

I've been playing with my Cameo by cutting out stencils of my own designs.  I'm still working on getting the settings right for cutting but I'm pretty excited about them.

OMG! This swap is so inspiring!  If I can get my challenges cleared up in time, Ill celebrate by joining.  Also, for anyone looking for josh paper, visit Asian grocery stores.  They often carry papers, etc, that are a lot of fun.

I so SO regret needing to pass on this swap.  Maybe I'll do a swap-a-long.  Unfortunately, an item from a recent swap did get to the house, but didn't get to me.  I don't want to risk that again with other awesome pieces.  I am looking forward to the gallery.

Stunning work!!  I finally opened up my Cameo and that you did with the deltas gives me hope.  When I saw that fabric in some of the pre-launch coverage, I never thought of making it!
