    I'm an activity coordinator and am looking for ideas for toothpick and paddle pop craft for use with Dementia residents (especially men). This means it would need to be simple but meaningful.

    Hello, I am looking for information for my grandson who owns a "N" scale model train. He is 12. He wants to learn to make a bridge for his train set out of toothpicks. Will your design above work for that? priestrivernana@gmail.com Please e mail me any information you might think useful for him. Thanks, Haddy Reno

    I think you guys could have shown us where to put the tooth picks more instead of just making the whole thing and then telling us where to put it.
