People with Alzheimer's love this project.

I am consistently thinking of ways to simplify my art projects so that the lovely people I work with can feel good through the whole process. This was a huge success because I went step by step and did much of the cutting myself ahead of time.


Cut out moon from white paper and glue to dark blue construction paper with glue stick.

Students draw spiral around moon with white colored pencil.

Before Class: tear three pieces of paper, each one smaller than the next, black, medium blue and white and glue to black paper.

Have participants glue darkest sheet onto dark blue paper first.

Glue lighter blue sheet over dark blue sheet.

Glue white sheet over blue sheet lining up with the bottom.

Before class :Cut out snowman, hat and carrot nose. Have participants glue to scene making sure the snowman bottom is on the white torn sheet.

Great Job!


You can modify and do this with kids too. I would let the kids do their own cutting and tearing. Bel...
