The Ideas Behind Bi-Folkal Kits The following information is from Bi-Folkal Productions, Inc.

Bi-Folkal Kits Are Multi-Sensory
All five senses trigger memories and transmit information. In any group program, the more senses you involve, the more people you involve. And the more you involve them.

Bi-Folkal Kits Begin With Remembering
Remembering is the first word of every kit title, and it's the first focus of every item we produce. Reminiscence programs can meet many needs: the need of the family to know and embrace its history; the need of older adults to put their lives in perspective; and the need of the community to understand and honor the accomplishments of earlier generations.

Bi-Folkal Kits Can Make History
All you need is a Bi-Folkal kit and some older adults. Put them together and what do you get? Eye-witness accounts of the past - his story, and her story, too. With a Bi-Folkal kit, you can do it. The memories of people's best times - and other times, too -are waiting to be collected and preserved. Bi-Folkal kits are just the ticket for the time machines ready to depart from the senior center, Grandma's birthday party, a historical society meeting, a nursing home, or the folks' golden anniversary celebration. Anywhere that the experienced and the curious get together, a Bi-Folkal kit can go, to bring back old memories...and to create new ones.
