For those who have been following my nursing home class saga, here is the latest. We finally were able to play with the Square 1 samples and the residents decided to make pumpkins and leaves. We had white Square 1 sheets to play with so they colored the pumpkin with crayons after I had cut it out with my Cricut. (They thought the Cricut was the most wonderful thing ever!) I had them take crayons and just color up a page in fall colors and then I cut leaves out from the page. They then took markers and highlighted the details. Everyone had fun playing and then they were able to hang the decorations on their walls.

Today we made cards again. I picked a bunch of leaves and gave them white paper and crayons. They made leaf rubbings with several colors and then we cut them down to card size, matted them and glued that onto the card base. I was so pleased with how well they turned out!!! Some of the residents need lots of help and some need just a little. I am always wiped out by the time class is over!!! lol

I am retired now, but I was a nurse in a wonderful nursing home for oh so many gratifying years. So I know the value of giving from our staff from the activities department and volunteers. The residents just love to do crafts. They are so proud to know that they can still makes things and show them off. I thank you for what you do.

Thanks for sharing the neat projects- I truly would have NEVER thought to do that with the Square 1 products. Awesome!!! Keep sharing your ideas because people like me are very uncreative!!!! Thanks, Joanne
