What are Bi-Folkal Kits?
Bi-Folkal Kits are a whole series of programs in a bag!
Primarily used by activities directors in nursing homes and senior centers; Bi-Folkal Kits are also popular with families and with group leaders of all ages to enhance multi-generational sensitivity and communication.
Bi-Folkal Kits are designed to stimulate memories and encourage discussion with older adults. Each kit comes in a sturdy, easy-to-carry bag, and contains CDS and/or DVDs, 25 large print booklets of sing-along songs, poetry and photographs, activities, skits, objects, shapes, textures or scents; all reminiscent of a selected theme. An extensive manual offers step-by-step instructions for programming and for using each kit piece. Additional program ideas and resources are suggested.
Bi-Folkal Kits can be found next to the Adult Information Desk, near the Book Club Kits.
