This is something you can enjoy with your children or grandchildren — or in my case — I enjoyed with my father while he was in nursing home care because of Alzheimer’s disease. Spending quality time with family is a rewarding experience, the benefits of which pay off for years to come. Spending time with your children or grandchildren is so much more important than spending money on them, and this is an inexpensive craft to do together.
Each evening after work for 15-months, I stopped at the nursing home and took something for my dad and me to do together. It was usually an easy crafting project that included painting clay pots. He really enjoyed it — it made him feel as though he had work to do and he was being helpful. I enjoyed spending that time with him each night, and it gave my mother a break. That time with your loved one that’s afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease is priceless — all you need to do is find something you can both enjoy doing together — engage your loved one and the time with them will be time well spent.
Yep, I’m a proud Daddy’s girl!
I have quite a few of these cute little projects that Dad and I did together, and I use most of them as Easter decorations.
I had my dad sign his…he wrote the date and my mother’s name. You can do the same by having your children sign and date them, then you can give the Chicks to your children as gifts when they celebrate Easter with their own children.
My dad and I did these together on March (I know it looks like an 8, but he had some trouble writing) 15, 2001.
Fun, Fun times that I will cherish forever!
