SPARK Box

What is a SPARK Box?

 

​SPARK Boxes contain arts supplies and an instruction booklet specifically designed to help build intergenerational relationships by SPARKing conversation, connection, and fun!

Unlike other arts toolboxes, Silver Kite's SPARK Box contains high quality non-toxic washable arts supplies which can be used by people of all ages. 

 

The 16 page instruction booklet is printed in a large font and provides step-by-stop instructions for over 14 different arts activities in a variety of art forms (music, movement, poetry, painting), providing opportunities for users to challenge, engage, and express themselves in new and exciting ways. 

 

The outside of our SPARK Box can be colored by the markers inside, providing another arts engagement opportunity.

The activities in the box can be done in partnership with a caregiver, family member, or friend or they can be done individually. ​

Who's the SPARK Box for?

  • Older adults who are home-bound, in skilled nursing or memory care.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

SPARK Boxes? For electricity, like a spark plug? For fire, like a match? Nope, much better. These are 5-Star sparks for igniting a mind or a group of minds. The power-packed contents offer deceptively simple, ready-to-use cognitive tools for families as well as professionals.
