Idea: Busy Hands for Dementia

My uncle is in a nursing home and has dementia. He isn't able to do much anymore, or remember much anymore, but he needs something to do with his busy hands. Otherwise the socks come off. I saw this in a catalog that I received at our church and thought it was a great idea. You have some great items in you catalog for this purpose. Thanks so much!

Idea: Special Education Music Class 

At our secondary school, we use S&S supplies for our special education music class. The students love using the ribbon wands as introductory or closure activities responding to the styles of music to which they are listening. The supplies are durable and inexpensive making them the perfect choice for daily classroom use.

Idea: Kindergarten Physical Education

The dice I plan on using for many different things. They can roll the dice and a number can correlate to an exercise. The nets are for the basketball hoops outside. Bouncy balls are a gift to my wife for her classroom. She has a fruit theme in her room this year. Footprints will be used for teaching layups and where to put your feet and I am sure I will come up with other ideas for them as well since I have Kindergarten again this year. The poly spots are for relays and the bracelets are for prizes.


- Jonathan/ Lost Creek Elementary


Idea: Learning with Themes

I'm a preschool teacher and we going to be doing a study on clothes. The children will be counting buttons then ,we're do a study on transportation and they will count different types of transportation and tell you whether it's land, water or air and then with the alphabet shapes they will be spelling their names and identifying colors.


- Victoria



Idea: Sight Word Spots

I love these spots! I teach kindergarten and I ordered some spots towards the end of school year last year and put sight words on them. Students lined up on a word and had to read it before walking out the door. Some times they lined up randomly and sometimes I assigned them a word that they needed to work on. I also carried them and put them down in the hall to line up at the restroom. They practiced their words and lined up nicely. We used them as a center by making a life size board game- I laid them out and they rolled a die then had to read the word they landed on- or all the words to that word. I ordered more to start the year I plan to put the letters of the alphabet on them. There are so many exciting ways to use these in the classroom!

Idea: Puzzles for Dementia 

My mom has Alzheimers & lives in a memory care facility. I ordered these tray puzzles for the residents. I have found through experience that many people with dementia enjoy puzzles when they are colorful, have a limited number of pieces, and have uncomplicated pictures. The activity opens the door for conversation.

We will be using the products for both Vacation Bible School and Sunday School. The small slinkys will become the arms and legs for robots, the large one is for decoration. Big is cool!

The craft sticks are also for and interactive board with Velcro. The sticks will be Velcro backed and also used to write words or make designs.

Idea: Mom's Cookbook of Love 

I'm making both my kids a cookbook of my recipes. Recipes I use a lot throughout the year and on special holidays. They are my recipes, recipes I have tweaked throughout the years and made them mine and their favorite.

The Bible story that day is the Good Samaritan.

Idea: 4-H Water Day at Clover Camps

We teach 4-H in Mobile, Alabama and have 4 different Clover Camps each summer for kids 8-18. This year one of ours will be a Water Day where we will teach about our usage of water, water conservation, the water cycle and will all probably get wet. We want to have the children make rain sticks to show how important water has been to us and our Native American ancestors.


- MaryJo/Alabama Cooperative Extension System


Idea: VBS - Construction Theme

I will be using the Fun Foam for 2 projects for our Construction themed Vacation Bible School. The first is to make photo frames. Children will dress up in a hard hat and carpenter's apron. The picture will be attached to a blueprint background with the Bible verse from Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." The frame will be decorated with peel and stick tools. The second project is to make Tangrams. A Tangram is cut from a square and has 7 shapes. These shapes are used to make a picture. We will have several to choose from, some easy and some challenging to teach children to have a stick to it attitude and not give up. God doesn't give up on us, we are his work in progress as he builds us into the kind of person who pleases him and lives for his purpose. Philippians 1:6 “Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

Craft pool is where the kids have a chance to be creative and use their imagination to construct anything they'd like to from a kiddie pool full of leftover craft supplies such as ribbon, scrap paper, marker caps, buttons, tissue boxes, string, fabric, and more! The hot glue is a great product that will glue almost anything together.
