This is a lovely, calming and creative activity for the elderly using smooth river rocks and pebbles. These decorated pebbles are perfect small gifts to give to friends, families and volunteers.
This is a wonderful craft activity for seniors that is fun, creative and always successful. There is no right or wrong way to put the stones together - each piece is unique and beautiful!
