I'm forever blowing bubbles

On Monday a little girl named Jennifer visited us in OT.

One of the Eden Alternative Principles states the following:

"An Elder-centred community imbues daily life with variety and spontaneity by creating an environment in which unexpected and unpredictable interactions and happenings can take place. This is the antidote to boredom." (Eden Alternative)

She was just exploring in our department, when she discovered a bottle of bubbles.  She immediately opened it and started blowing bubbles for the older ladies and men visiting the department.  Their reactions were wonderful.  They tried to catch the bubbles or blow them away or just looked at them in amazement. It was an unexpected surprise which blew them away (no pun intended :) ).  Here are some of the photos.

Mrs Anna Marks seeing how many bubbles she could catch.

They really enjoyed the morning and started singing:  "I'm forever blowing bubbles"

I'm forever blowing bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air,
They fly so high,
Nearly reach the sky,
Then like my dreams,
They fade and die.
Fortune's always hiding,
I've looked everywhere,
I'm forever blowing bubbles,
Pretty bubbles in the air.
