Hang hearts from ceiling with strings or attach to walls and glass windows with blue tack. If you want to make garlands use the small heart template.
This is one of many free activities.
Golden Carers has 1000s of activities and resources for senior care.

Materials:

  • Contact paper (self adhesive book cover) cut to A4 size. You will need 2 pieces per sun catcher.
  • Construction paper cut to A4 size (any thick paper is suitable).
  • Scissors, glue, markers, and string.
  • Decorations: whatever you have on hand: confetti, glitter, stickers, letters, drawings, cut flowers or petals, dried herbs, or colourful tissue paper.
Note: To make them twice as big as the ones in the photo, cut everything to A3 size instead. Buy 10 to 15 metres of contact paper in this case.

Instructions:

  • Download heart template, trace onto construction paper and then cut out the heart (inside).
  • Peel off one piece of contact paper and place construction paper on top.
  • Give to clients to decorate.
  • Once complete, peel off another piece of contact paper and cover the decorated side.
  • Hang hearts from ceiling with strings or attach to walls and glass windows with blue tack. If you want to make garlands use the small heart template.
