GREAT for DIY Dads
Tool Shed Activities Bundle
He may not be able to potter around in his shed as much as he used to, but this fabulous kit is packed with activities which could bring back many happy memories of DIY projects. The kit contains puzzles, arts and crafts and sensory activities all with a tool-shed theme. Each one is also carefully designed to encourage conversation, boost confidence and provide stimulation for people with dementia. We think it’s a great gift.
NEW to Unforgettable
Fiddle Muff Apron
Fiddle Muffs are a great way to ease boredom, stress and agitation. This one is large (640mm x 650mm) and made from a durable, soft denim fabric to give it a particularly masculine feel. It’s also been specially weighted to help the person using it feel warm, secure and comforted. The apron was created using a variety of tactile materials and contains removable pockets (where you can put favourite photos and trinkets) and carabiner clips. An exceptionally well made gift.
