About the activity & how to play it

This simple activity helps to remind people of their daily routines. Many will remember doing the laundry at home and will easily engage with the gentle and repetitive nature of this task.

Seeing the result – a pile of freshly folded laundry – will give them a sense of purpose and achievement. 

 

You'll need

  1. Laundry baskets
  2. Various items of clean and brightly coloured laundry, which could include:
  • Socks
  • T-shirts
  • Tea towels
  • Blankets
  • Baby clothes
  • Lace tablecloths
  • Pillow cases

The Activity

  1. Begin by giving each person a basket with just a few items in (a full basket might seem too daunting at first)
  2. Encourage them to fold them, one at a time
  3. If they are enjoying the task, give them another basket with more items to fold
  4. Chat to people about some of the items they are folding and the activity, encouraging them to reminisce about their lives
