Family Easter Party

Here at Carrington Court we had a very “Hoppy” Easter! We were joined by family, grand children, and the Easter Bunny! It’s always fun to watch the kids run around for the Easter egg hunt and win prizes! The residents enjoyed being with family, having a treat and getting their pictures taken with the Easter Bunny! Thanks to all who came!

The Cathedral of the Madeline

Our memory care residents had a unique opportunity the other week to go and tour the Cathedral of the Madeline! It has been an iconic building here in Salt Lake City, and it was so fun to see and learn about the history and architecture. The beautiful stained glass windows designed in Germany were a favorite of everyone!

St. Patrick’s Day fun!

It was finally St. Patrick’s Day! We have been doing fun things leading up to this day all last week! Everyone dressed up in some kind of green so no one got pinched! We made shamrock pins and painted a rainbow with a pot of gold. it was great to be Irish for a day!

Irish Soda Bread

Baking is so much fun, and brings back a lot of fond memories for our residents! This last week we made some delicious Irish soda bread! It’s always really fun to make and even more so to eat!

Wearing of the Green

St. Patrick’s Day is such a fun holiday to celebrate! And our Memory Care residents have had a lot going on! We had a visit from Debra Bowers and her parents who sang and danced to some fun Irish songs. We are so grateful they come and share their love of music with us! And we had a visit from a Leprechaun!!

Leprechaun Crafts

These are some fun pictures from two crafts our residents have done. A cute paper bag Leprechaun and a fun Leprechaun’s hat! We love getting into these fun holidays and of course everyone loves to do crafts!

A St. Patrick’s Day treat!

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up, we made a yummy green milkshake! Everyone helped put the ingredients together and make sure the recipe was right. It turned out great, and with a fun green cupcake it was the perfect St. Patrick’s Day snack!

 

A Presidential Craft

To celebrate President’s Day we refreshed our memories about all our presidents with some trivia. Then we did this fun George Washington craft!
