Hi

My mom is 84 and some of my friend's moms are about same age. I was thinking of getting together and doing a fun craft with them for Christmas. Like one craft I saw where you glue their pics (face)  on an elf body. I would love to make them participate like coloring it or doing something to pass the time and have fun at the same time. Bring the child in them out for a little while. It is needed at any age. It will be a group of 4 moms ,4 daughters and 4 granddaughters. We vare all blessed to still have our moms around and want to cherish it.

Any one can suggest anything along this line to spend a nice afternoon and everyone participating in a fun crafty way? I want everyone to have fun and to use their hands in something not extremely difficult and that they can take with them. They dont know how to sew or weave Sad I would appreciate any reply. I'll be checking regularly.

Thank UUU Smiley

xoxo

Perhaps you could make paper heart baskets? Like this:

As you can see, there are all kinds of advanced patterns, but the basic one is no too hard so that I think everyone could make. Also you could get nice shiny paper that is fun to work with.

Thank you for your reply. This is really really cute though Im not sure if they can because two of them have arthritis, but I'll suggest it to the others and see . I really like it though.  I'm still in search of the elf patterns.

Thanks so much for taking the time to reply. I will keep this because even for one of my friends grand kids is great! Smiley
