Our Finished Mosaic From Amberwood House

20200529_143133We finished our mosaic/collage that we been doing as a sensory project. As we have some residents here who don’t have great eyesight, and one of our residents is blind we thought it was really good especially for those particular residents to get involved. Firstly, we added tissue paper which has a rustling sound when scrunched up, then each letter was made with spices we used which gave off a great aroma! We used Cinnamon, Ginger, Cayenne Pepper, Turmeric, Smoked Paprika and Cumin which gave us the vibrant colours and the great smells. Mixed together with different flowers and leaves from the garden there certainly was a gorgeous smell from the roses & herbs. We managed to use feathers which were a great sensory addition to the project. We had a great time making the mosaic everyone got involved.
