Bring Memories to Life on a Memory Board
As we age, we find that having fond visual memories of our friends, family members and pets bring us joy. So many events happen in our lifetime’s that are memorable moments or milestones of progress or achievement. Having the space to display all of these photos and mementos can however prove challenging if you have downsized like so many seniors usually do.
When you no longer have the space for larger display cabinets or book shelves, you need to think outside the box and get creative with how you display your memories.
A memory board is a perfect option that provides the ability to be able to display favorite photos, fond memories of vacations, birthdays, concert tickets, love letters, birth announcements for grand kids, etc. Local craft stores have many options for memory boxes that can be hung on the wall that allow for items that are 3 dimensional to be added. Or large photo frames can act as collages and you can group several together spanning different decades.
The sky is the limit with memory boards and you can have fun with them by changing them out with the upcoming seasons, holidays, or birthdays. With Halloween approaching, a great idea for a memory board would be photos of children and/or grand children in their costumes over the years. Drawings or notes from school and some fall decor could make it a special piece leading into Thanksgiving and Christmas where you can change out the items and photos again.
Not only are you creating great decor for your walls, your stimulating your mind with fabulous memories which will for sure bring smiles to all who see your creations. Memory boxes hold items that bring us back to a moment in time that we hold dear, stirring memoriesof happy moments in life. It opens up to conversation and gives seniors enjoyable moments to talk about.
Enjoy making your own memory boards and/or boxes this fall. Think outside the box, with photo frames, note boards, cork boards or even fabric boards. You may surprise yourself at what your imagination can create.
