International Sculpture Day is a worldwide celebration of sculpture that raises awareness, appreciation, and enjoyment of sculpture in communities.
At Steep House Nursing Home, our residents created beautiful sculptures out of Play-Doh. Chatting as they worked about our creations and the inspirations behind them.
Whether residents create something or not, smashing, rolling, and squeezing playdough can occupy anxious hands and is a soothing sensory activity for our dementia patients. Modelling and sculpting are therapeutic activities that provide creative stimulation and social interaction and increase positivity.
