I NEED EASY CRAFTS FOR SENIORS IN THE NURSING HOME

Re: I NEED EASY CRAFTS FOR SENIORS IN THE NURSING HOME

I work at a personnal care home and try to find crafts that are easy but not too hard. I have found that these residnents enjoy painting. Painting on wood, a very simple version of tole painting, and they really enjoy just painting on a piece of paper. I find a simple picture trace it out,clowns ,butterfly, ihave even used a coloring book too find a picture. We have painted a sunrise on a peice of leather and made a frame out of dowels and used pieces of leather thong to attach it on.Very cheap we used old leather clothing. They have painted pictures on bathroom tiles,quilted, pincushions. I am now looking for paddlestone bricks to paint to look like turtles and ladybugs. They will make an excellent door stops.I too am always on the lookout for a new and fun idea. Hope this helps a little bit.
