The residents at our Sheboygan Memory Care Community are busy making ornaments for our Gingerbread man themed tree. They began with plain Styrofoam balls and holiday fabric and ended up with gorgeous ornaments. They have also made some creative gingerbread cookies ornaments and other fun decorations for the tree. It definitely was great hand-over-hand interaction and even more importantly, smile upon smiles.
It was fun to reminisce about decorating our own family trees. Some had real while others had artificial. Some had themed trees and others were happy to just have ornaments.
The residents and family really enjoyed their creations and sharing fond memories.
