WHAT'S A BIFOLKAL KIT?

A BIFOLKAL KIT IS A WHOLE SERIES OF   PROGRAMS IN A BAG!


Designing their theme kits to stimulate the memories and communication skills of older adults; Bi-Folkal Productions encourages multi-sensory programs by filling each sturdy, easy-to-carry bag with slides, videos or both, cassette tapes, 25 large print booklets of sing-along songs, poetry and photographs, activities, skits, objects, shapes, textures or scents; all reminiscent of a selected theme. An extensive manual offers step-by-step instructions for programming and for using each kit piece. Additional program ideas and resources are suggested.

Though primarily used by activities directors in nursing homes and senior centers; Bifolkal Kits are also popular with families and with group leaders of all ages to enhance multi-generational sensitivity and communication.

CCLS OUTREACH HAS 19 DIFFERENT TITLES AVAILABLE FOR LOAN TO CHAUTAUQUA AND CATTARAUGUS COUNTY RESIDENTS:

* includes slides and a video

** Designed for a shorter program series on a smaller budget, a Mini-Kit comes in a smaller bag. It is still stuffed with program ideas; however, and includes slides and a video. The biggest difference is that you'll have to gather most of your own things to touch and make your own photocopies.
