  • Why not add items to the set to create different eras?
  • Items are made from a variety of materials to enable a unique tactile experience and are housed in a keepsake container for storage.
  • Can be used as a ‘Rummage Box’ or as part of a display.

(Please note contents may vary).


Activity Ideas
  • Display the rollers and other hairstyle-related items on a table. Discuss what was the most popular hairstyle of people’s day. Did they do their own hair? Did anyone have a perm? Did anyone manage to do a beehive? Show the popular styles of the 1960s by clicking on the link:
  • Ask a member of staff to paint participants’ nails. Have a number of different shades to choose from. Ask if anyone ever had a beauty treatment at a salon. What did they have done? Was it for a special occasion? Have a game to see how many make-up brands they can name (Rimmel, Max Factor, No 7, Boots 17, Estee Lauder, Maybelline, Avon, Revlon).
  • Plan a dance party ‘Hop’ in your care home.  Ask a local dance school if they would be willing to come and put on a dance display of jive/rock and roll.
