This seaside themed dot to dot activity is a Winslow Resources exclusive!
We carefully created images and sized the dots and numbers as large as we could without detracting from the design, with the intention that these should be accessible for users with visual impairment.The content was chosen with intentionally simple, easy to recognise and age appropriate images, based around different popular group activity themes to start meaningful conversation, discussion and prompt memory. The activity itself requires sequencing skills, helps to maintain fine motor skills and uses hand-eye co-ordination, concentration, attention etc.
Why not use the finished dot to dot as the basis for an extended art/colouring/multi-sensory activity session by introducing paint, pastels, or collage the finished piece with rice, feathers, cut out magazines etc? The finished piece can even be framed for display after completion.
- This seaside version features 8 images of a lighthouse, ice cream, seagull, beach huts, boat and bouy and a bucket and spade.
- Set of 48. Size: A4.
- Ms O'Hagan (Activities Co-ordinator), age of users in group 70-100 (Dementia & Older Adults)."Dementia users struggled with the numbers but enjoyed joining up the lines anyway. Discussions on the seaside followed. Those without Dementia enjoyed finding the pictures and the discussion afterwards. A nice activity to be done in groups or individually. The pictures are not childish."
- M Sommerrey (Occupational Therapy Assistant) used with a gentleman on a mental health ward. Age of user 89 (Alzheimer's). "First picture chosen was a boat (it triggered memories of the time when the patient joined the Navy - reminisced." Patient said that "It was quite good. I could join up another one". The patient was reported to take away the boat picture. "I've used similar resources before, but it was too complicated for patients. This one is better."
