Jacks and ball


The picture of the ball and jacks caught my eye! Here is part of what the article with the picture said, "Get out the wooden tops, jacks and marbles - classic toys are finding new life as rehabilitation tools for seniors. In various nursing homes and senior centers on the East Coast, a new program, administered by the Teacher Place & Parent Resources in Burlington, Vermont, uses classic toys to improve memory and hand-eye coordination."

Very interesting--how did you find this?

I saw this on a blog called Stroller Derby and it appeared they got it from a newspaper article in VT where the program was developed.
