TLS 365 Experience #252
November 7, 2017
Over the years I have bought many finger labyrinths from TLS Members and bid on several from the silent auction. I use them in working with Seniors who aren’t able to move as freely without a walker, cane or wheel chair for support Sometimes I begin a story and let them come up with an ending, this works well in the schools too. Other times we talk about life and use the finger labyrinth before and after for different outcomes.
The variety is nice because some need a simple design with few paths, others like the more intricate and narrower lines of the Chartres design. There are many types of textures in the different varieties too as it can help with tactile stimulation with seniors or special education groups similarly. There are many similarities in working with youth and seniors and the labyrinth is something that can be a versatile education that is movement oriented, stimulating and can be fun and playful for either group too.
