It's June Already!

Wow! May really flew by quickly- with Cinco de Mayo, Mother's Day and Memorial Day!  We had lots of opportunities to create colorful crafts for the Season.  One of our favorites- the kind of project that represented May Day, Cinco de Mayo and Mother's Day was our fun and festive paper flower wreaths.

Paper flowers are an inexpensive, yet fun project and it is easy for everyone to do.  The activity not only yields a great result- but it is also a great opportunity to exercise hand dexterity and hand eye coordination. Everyone really had a good time making the flowers and seeing just how wild a combination of colors they could come up with!

Here are some of our group's creations at Horizon Bay in Plano, TX:

Beverly at Horizon Bay with her fun creation! 

Flo was happy with her Paper Flower Wreath!

Inez always does a great job and is so creative!
Pretty wreath for a pretty lady- Great job Renee' !
We had more fun at Chambrel at Club Hill in Garland- take a look at these:

 Every wreath and every flower as unique as the person who made it!

Some of our other May projects were patriotic bird houses- in honor of Memorial Day, Pointillism paintings, and lots of gardening projects before the Texas heat hits for the Summer months. 

This month will be a month of Red, White and Blue projects, Door Wreaths, Indoor Garden Projects and Polymer Clay beginning projects.  Getting ready for Summer and July 4th will be fun for everyone this month!

If you have any Red, White and Blue projects that would be appropriate for Seniors- please feel free to share with me!  I would love your feedback!

Until next time- Stay Creative and Have a Happy June!
