We are an elderly housing unit, apartments. We have our own craft group. Currently we make homemade cards for 30 in local nursing home who get no mail or visitors, etc. We use markers, glitters, stickers,, glue, paper, foam, felt, more. Have great fun, and the patients love them. we are looking for more ideas.


Editors Note: Thank You, Marge! We would love to hear more from you and others as we have many requests for ideas from housing units just like yours.....thanks again!

Elderly Activities - Craft Ideas
by: marge

Hello again, thank you for the suggestion about small gift bags. A few of us sew and may make small pillows for wheelchair bound folks, wheelchair/walker bags. I was thinking of a game/recreation time for all of us here too. We are elderly/disabled adults, ages 60 - 96, but have our own apartments.

What about little holiday gift bags to send to patients who have no family members. It could include cards, small gifts that can be made or bought and a pretty gift bag that would cheer anyone up.
