(http://www.eggmazing.com/) I decided to purchase it and try it out with grandma.
It was the best! Firstly, it is impossible to make a mistake. It does not require balancing skills, or even a good grip.
I think it is a great activity for people with dementia. There are no rules, just hold the marker in your hand and let the egg spin, that's it. I believe even patients with severe dementia would find joy using the decorator.
Grandma LOVED designing the eggs. I actually purchased wooden eggs, so they could be saved forever! I then experimented with other objects like my EOS lip gloss container which is round.
It can be enjoyed by people who do not want to decorate eggs, since the round EOS lip glass container worked beautifully. I gather that a ping pong ball or any other oval or round object that is the size of the spinner would work, just fine!
I am really looking forward to bringing Girl Scout Troops and kids from my "Kid Caregivers" group to senior facilities with the Egg Kit. It will definitely work well with seniors who have Cerebral Palsy and have trouble moving their hands. It is a fun and enjoyable way to spend time!
1. Show the loved one a finished egg.
2. Demonstrate how to do it on your own egg.
3. Offer the loved one a marker.
4. Gently place the loved one's hand with the marker, over the egg.
5. Offer the loved one different colors
6. Have fun!
