Months of winter have everyone at the Cook Street Community Home missing flowers and the warm sunshine! So residents decided to do something about it! They did some internet shopping and found a spring-themed sun-catcher set that caught everyone’s eye. The kit included 24 custom sun-catchers ready to be painted with vibrant spring colors.
Residents Richard, Madeline, and Paul chose their favorite sun-catchers and got right to work painting. Paul shared, “I love doing crafts with Michele (staff member). They’re fun.” Paul is excited about spring and says that he is looking forward to spending some time outdoors in the sunshine again.
Once the newly decorated sun-catchers were dry, everyone decided where to hang them. The dining room window was an ideal location, so everyone could see them while they came together for a meal. This project brought in some spring colors and got everyone excited for spring!
