Winter Crafts

Even though it’s winter, it sure hasn’t felt like it here! So we’ve brought winter to us! Our memory care residents have had a lot of fun making these creative winter crafts.

Snowmen Everywhere!

Crafts are a big hit, especially with our memory care residents. They love making fun things and getting involved. This winter we have made all sorts of snowmen, out of every material possible!

Here are some pictures of our snowmen:

With one project we even had some help from some little visitors, who made it even more fun!

Pajama Day!

Every year around Christmas we stay in our pajamas all day long! Relaxing all day in PJ’s is always a fun thing. Even some of our CNA’s joined in with the fun!

Holiday Necklaces

Last month our residents from Memory Care had a great time making these festive holly berry necklaces! They were great for Christmas and everyone joined in the fun!

Making Sugar Cookies

Most everyone has fond memories of cookies, whether it is eating them or joining in with the baking! It is always great fun and makes us happy!!

 

Family Christmas Dinner

What a merry Christmas our residents had! Joined by their families and loved ones. We had a great dinner prepared by our awesome kitchen and a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus! It was a fun night spent together as a family. We are so grateful to all who help us put this together. Merry Christmas!

 

 

Christmas Wreaths

Christmas time is here! So to decorate, our residents made some festive wreaths! They turned out beautifully! With paper, glue, ribbon, and sparkles everywhere we had a great time!

Entertainment from Debra Bowers and her parents

The other day we had a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus! Debra Bowers and her parents came all dressed up for Christmas. They sang and danced to Christmas songs we all know and love. It was great to watch and sing a long! We love it when they come, they do such a good job!

Singing Time

Here at Carrington Court music is so important! Our residents really had a fun time the other day with this group that came in and sang Christmas songs with them. Music can be relaxing and fun, and one of those things that most tend to remember. Thank you for coming and singing with us!

Nativity Fesitval

To start off this Christmas season, our residents got to go to the Parkway Nativity Festival. We enjoyed looking at all of the Nativities on display, there were so many to look at. It was so fun seeing all the different styles and cultures through the Nativities, and after enjoying a little treat! We are so grateful to all the volunteers like always who come and help us out!

These are some of the fun Nativities that were on display. They were from all over the world! One was even made out of banana peels.
