Keepsake Crafting 4 Seniors
In our child rearing and working years, we have very little time for doing crafting projects. When we do take the time to get creative, it’s usually a crafting project we do with the children in our lives. And we certainly don’t have time to create something for ourselves.
Our senior years are the perfect time to get back to crafting! Many seniors find themselves with time to fill and making something with their hands is a great way to fill it! Creativity stimulates the mind, and keeping the mind active is so very important for a senior’s cognitive health. Cognitive health is the ability to clearly think, learn and remember. Crafting is a fun way to stimulate the brain!
Seniors can also use crafting as a way to tune back in to the things they’ve learned during their lifetime and share them with others. They have a life-long knowledge base that needs to be shared with the next generation. I was lucky enough to have my grandparents in my life into my 20’s. The things they shared with me I will carry with me always. Shocker, my grandmother was a crafter!
And, crafting is absolutely a great way to give back. There are many crafting projects that seniors can Create & Donate!
Here is a link to a page I created with ideas for Seniors to Create & Donate:
Unfortunately, as we get older, our hands and fingers may not work as well as they used to. But the good news is there are plenty of fun crafting projects that can be altered to fit the capabilities of the person doing to crafting.
I am looking forward to sharing some great Keepsake Crafting Kits, and tutorials for this section!
Seniors have a special place in my heart.
