Memory boxes contain objects thet help reflect and recall past experiences. They can help generate meaningful conversations between generations as they prompt memories for the individual and family group. Memory boxes can be used to engage with people living with memory problems such as dementia by providing mental and emotional stimulation and interaction with others. Memory boxes can also be used by teachers and school children to help bring the past to life.
Our memory boxes contain replica memorabilia related to a theme aimed at prompting memories from that era or theme. They are a great starting point for creating a more personal memory prompt.
The Wartime Box is aimed at prompting memories of wartime Britain in the 1940's. The box can also be useful in the classroom for Home Front projects. Replica posters and ration books can transport us to a very different time. Tips given to American servicemen stationed in Britain offer us an insight into attitudes of the day and constraints faced by society at that time. Consider adding more personal family items such as letters and photographs, maybe even a pork pie hat or a 1940's dress may still be found.
