Art And Crafts Fun At JASA
Seniors made beautiful silk flower arrangements in clay pots. Another popular project was wooden 5x7 frames that the seniors got to decorate. They painted the frames first with fast drying paint and then decorated with colorful self-adhesive foam shapes, stickers, scrap book decorations and small silk flowers. There is nothing like an arts and crafts project to make you feel young again. Everyone was smiling!
