I have worked with seniors with varying degrees of dementia, I have gathered ideas and instructions that are appropriate for them.
Crafting and creating enriches their lives and brings smiles to their faces.

Be mindful and keep an individuals ability in your consideration of a project.
Currently more than 550 crafts are available.
Seniors love to do crafts. They smile, laugh and are so proud that they made or helped make something. Any activity that brings a smile and happiness to them is a blessing.

"Any activity becomes creative when the doer cares about doing it right or doing it better." ~John Updike

Spring Flowers

  Bright colors welcome Spring.  A BigShot and Sizzix dies were used  to cut out vase, flowers and leaves from card stock. An embossing folder was used to flourish the vase. The vase is 3 dimensional..
After die cutting the vase, branches and flowers arrange and glue to a suitable sized paper backing. Punch holes at top on each side and add ribbon for hanging.
