Ellen Bowman is a retired public school art teacher who is now teaching arts and crafts to groups of elderly residents living in independent and assisted living communities. She also has done art activities with the elderly who are cared for in their own homes .
Ellen has put together two booklets for Activity Directors filled with 10 very easy to follow tutorials of the most favored crafts of her elderly friends.These booklets are available at www.happyhoureldercrafts.com. You can also see many of her crafters at work on her Facebook page @happyhoureldercrafts.

We know that creating things with our hands can be just plain fun as well as being good for body and soul. However…as an arts and crafts teacher for many Independent and Assisted Living retirement communities, I found that getting folks to sign up on the craft attendance sheet was always a challenge.
