Pioneer Day is such a fun holiday, with a lot of memories of traditions for some of the residents. Our memory care residents celebrated for a few days, with so many different activities and crafts we couldn’t fit them all into one day.
One day we made little dolls out of yarn! At first they seemed complicated but everyone figured it out and they turned out so cute!
Then, it was hard work but well worth it to make our own butter! We just shook up some cream and salt until we had butter! It tasted really good especially on the muffins we made that morning.
It was hard work cutting and gluing everything together but a lot of fun to make these covered wagons! We are grateful we didn’t have to travel in these!
On Pioneer Day we all sat down and watched the parade on TV! Parades are full of tradition, especially for this holiday, and it’s so nice to watch it inside with air conditioning! After the parade, we played a fun horse race game.
These next pictures are of the handkerchief dolls we made!
