3 Festive Easter Crafts for Seniors (Inspired By Our Residents)

Back to Blog

Whether you’re celebrating the upcoming Easter holiday with Sunday mass, or with a simple, small gathering of family and friends, there are a few creative activities to enjoy with loved ones and neighbors to make the day even more festive.

Here are three crafts to complete for Easter Sunday:


Painted Eggs

One of the first things that comes to mind with the Easter holiday are eggs. Decorated eggs not only look beautiful, but can also be a great source of entertainment for younger and older generations, alike, through an Easter egg hunt.

Decorate a few boiled eggs with craft dye, paint them by hand, or embellish with stickers. Then, gather up a group for a fun egg hunt!


Flower Bouquets

What is spring without flowers? Even those without a greenthumb or who suffer from springtime allergies can participate in this activity with ease.

Create a vivid bouquet using artificial flowers, and wrap with colorful tissue paper and ribbon, when finished. Place around the home or use as a table setting for an Easter brunch.


Make A Card

There’s no occasion too small to send a card, so Easter Sunday more than warrants an excuse to make one.

Design the beautiful spring scene of your choosing through your own illustrations, or simply adorn your card with embellishments like felt shapes, stickers or stamps.
