Participants: 100 (children, teenagers, disabled people and seniors)
Sessions: 2 (six hours)
Date: November 2015
1st session: Creating toys
For the creation of the toys, 10 groups were created mixing children, teenagers and disabled people. Each group was leaded by an elder.
2nd session: Playing all together
In a second time, they tried the toys created and they also played to traditional games.
- Identify and use supportive interaction strategies that encourage active learning for children and meaningful relationships and experiences during intergenerational activities.
Elders have so much wisdom to offer, and young children are eager to learn. Our challenge in the emerging intergenerational field is to develop activities into BODY project that leave a lifelong impression on children and let seniors feel they have made an important contribution to the next generation.
