Drawing is a fun and interactive activity to pursue. Most people have done a little drawing or at least some doodling at some point in their lives. Offer clients the opportunity to revisit drawing as a pastime.

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! Encourage your clients to unleash their inner talents! These lovely stone creations make lovely gift mementos too.
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.
