Now if you are planning on calling a local Senior Center or Meals on Wheels and offer to make them monthly party favors - here are some simple guidelines:
1. Don't include food items - many seniors are on special diets
2. Don't make religion specific items for the holidays for example in December make a snowman craft
3. Make the party favors - so that they can be given to a gentleman or a lady
4. Package the party favor in a cute way so it seems like a special treat.
These are my Meals on Wheels ideas for the rest of the year - by planning my crafts I be organized and can watch for coupons and sales.
July - 4th of July Necklaces (Done)
July - mini summer themed card with drink umbrella (Done) The umbrellas will be opened up right before the little summer card is delivered. Inside of the card - I wrote "Stay cool this summer!"
August - little baseball paddle game (Done) On card - I wrote "Summertime is also Baseball time"
August - felt fish - I need a goldfish cookie cutter to use as a tracing template
September - back to school themed treat - I am thinking pencils?
September - magnifying glasses
October - egg carton pumpkin - need 10 egg cartons (I guess I need to start saving them asap!)
October - witches broom pens
November - a turkey themed placemat and/or turkey bookmark
December - snowman or gingerbread man craft. Still deciding.....
