Crafting with Seniors – A Day of Festive Fun!

Seniors making holiday cards

As part of our effort to bring fun activities to seniors in Dayton’s Bluff and Payne-Phalen, East Side Elders organized a day of holiday crafting!  Seniors, joined by volunteers, spent a few hours making cards, decorations, and gift bags.  While some seniors were hesitant at first – doubting their artistic ability – they found that with just a little help, they could create something beautiful.  Handmade holiday cards were created with stickers, stamps, markers, and more!  One participant even created a snowman using a battery-operated candle, pipe cleaners, ribbon, and other decorative elements.  It was heartwarming to see the pride in the faces of seniors who created such lovely cards and decorations.
