Arts and crafts are always popular activities for our residents and clients across our Group Homes and Day Programs – especially in the lead up to Easter!
A Chance for Skills Development
Our residents and clients have been busily using their imaginations and creativity to brighten up their homes and sites with amazing Easter decorations! In the Butterflies and Empire Group Homes, our residents have been developing their fine motor skills with Easter decoration making.
Creativity in Action
The ladies in the Butterflies home have made pots with dried flowers and then they have hung Easter eggs and bunny’s from them to make amazing decorations to adorn their homes. The Butterflies ladies haven chosen their own art and craft materials and worked together to create these decorations. With such pride in their creations, one resident commented: “They all look lovely, Our house is beautiful.”
At the Empire Group home, Matthew, Wesley, Jeremey, Marcus, Robin and Joseph have made an Easter table decoration for their dining table. This is sure to brighten up the area – just in time for Easter. They used a chocolate egg and bunny ears and glued on a nose and eyes for the centre piece, and Easter eggs on sticks to decorate around the base.
This was a fantastic group effort and an amazing creation by the team. Each member of the group contributed their thoughts about how the decoration could look and worked with the others to make an amazing centrepiece.
As Easter approaches, our residents and clients will be immersed in all the bright pastels and colour that Easter brings. They can celebrate this bunny-tastic holiday with their friends and family at their Group homes and within their Day Programs, with our staff supporting them.
The Afford Lifestyle
It is through activities such as this, that our residents are supported to express themselves and contribute to the decoration of their homes. It’s their home and they can choose how they want to decorate and celebrate together. That’s the Afford Lifestyle.
