Building something new or mending something old gave people independence and valuable experience. The DIY movement increased in popularity after WWII as home ownership was rising, tradesmen were expensive, servants were gone and the housing stock decaying. Ordinary people wanted to learn DIY because they now needed to do the work themselves.
The Creative Scenes™ range enables people to create their own tool shed using a set of magnetic pieces. Each magnetic tool can be picked up and placed on the background wherever they choose, creating their very own tool shed. With no wrong answer this activity helps to give a sense of achievement.
These scenes are beautifully illustrated and created to ensure that when each scene has been created, they are reminiscent of the appropriate era which people can relate to.
An ideal activity that can help start and create meaningful conversations.
