Reminiscing with Pinterest

Caregivers Activity Source is trying something new for reminiscing!

For those of you who have a Pinterest account I am linking up reminiscing questions/clues with a board I have created just for this post on my Pinterest page. If you don’t have a Pinterest account it is easy to sign up for one.

This is how Reminiscing About Movie Stars Pinterest Board Works.

  1. Link to the Pinterest board Movie Star Reminiscing. A tablet may be easier to use if you will be doing this activity during a one to one, but you may use a computer as well.
  2. Print the following questions/clues to use with the Movie Star Reminiscing board about the movie stars pinned on the board. Or you may wish to open a second window on your computer or tablet and switch back and forth. The questions or clues will provide some information about a movie star. An elder can then find the picture of the star that matches that information. It is much like reminiscing trivia using clues to find pictures of stars.
  3. Continue to reminisce about the movie stars they find.
  4. I have limited the amount of pins to 23 as to not overwhelm an elder with too many pins. But there are only 18 questions or clues.
  5. See the answers listed below.
  6. Please let me know how this method of reminiscing works for you. I can do more of these types of posts if this works for you. Your feedback is much appreciated. The comment section below will be open for two weeks.
