Flower Day

Today we are making flowers from different mediums.
Don't throw paper scraps out as they are so useful!

Daffodils-made out of cupcake liners and centers are paper scraps. Will add a lollipop stem for stability.
Q-Tip Paintings-We used art paper so the paper does not roll with wet paint. Outlined a flower cookie cutter.  Q-tips make a neat pattern and are so easy to use. It makes it fun for people at all skill levels.
Egg carton flower-I hate wasting left over paint. So cut up egg cartons into squares. Take left over paint and color the inside. Add a lollipop stem for stability.

Let's Go To The Hop!

The residents favorite entertainer put on another fabulous show! The theme was a Sock Hop!
Smiles all around!
People were singing, tapping their feet, clapping and dancing!
Trina outfitted the first row in crazy hair from the Pink Ladies Hair Salon! Everyone cheered the ladies on and everyone was giggling and smiling at their new hair!

What's Bugging You?

Wow! Check out these adult colorings made by two residents.

I saw this intricate page and knew some residents would be very interested. Once done I glued on origami paper to make it pop. I love the colors they picked! Both want their work hung in their room.

The residents are so excited for Trina the Entertainer at 2 PM today!

Crafting A Door Collage

Residents were able to express their hobbies, favorite foods, pets, colors and more through a collage made out of magazine clippings.
Each person took a piece of cardboard for their base. Next they picked and cut magazine pieces.
Lastly, arranged on the board then glued down.
Once dried I hung outside their door.

Mammals of Pennsylvania Lecture

Naturalist, Sue Miller visited us this week. The residents loved something different and new! So many of our residents love animals and also have a strong intellectual interest in subjects. Everyone was truly captivated for the entire 60 minutes. She discussed mammals of PA with pelts and pictures. Really a great event!
