I love it. Vi had a residents family member complain at our annual inspection that the craft was "demeaning to the residents". Hope these will not go down as too childish.. As we all know it is sometimes very hard to get some elderly folk in residential Homes ,with several types of difficulties to actually do craft. I have done this job for 14 years now...this is my first complaint!!!

Hi Elizabeth, what a good idea to use last years' calendar.

Hi, we made the Chinese Lanterns out of last years calendars, the country scenes look really great. Residents all had a good time making them. Look great in the lounge for all to see. Family members are most impressed with them.

I did these with my residents & we put hearts on them for Valentines day & Chinese new year as it was on the same day this year. We hung them in the diningroom as soon as we finished & they were the top of the conversation over lunch.
