Hello and happy Tuesday! We had a wondeful day filled with art, music and nature. Our morning began with Arts and Crafts. Our inspriation were bubbles and the color blue- our medium: acrylic paint. We worked with a simple color pallette of cobalt, baby blue and white- the colors alone brought discussions of memories of the ocean, lakes and calm blue summer skys. Once we had our background painted- the residents allowed their creativity take hold to create some beautiful masterpieces. After our painting session, we traveled outside for some fresh air, sunshine and to enjoy the beautiful flowers. By then- all of the residents were ready for some lunch. After our rest break we gathered in the family room for some Trivia fun before our afternoon entertainment, Jim Roth arrived. Polka music could be heard down every hall- along with our clapping! Jim is quite the entertainer and we all enjoy him so very much! Please enjoy the photos.
