Christmas is a busy time of year for most. At nursing homes, residents can feel very lonely this time of year. Some are lucky to have family visit whilst others rely more on volunteers to visit, to play music, knit, make some art and craft and have a cup of tea together. This is a Christmas tree craft activity from Christmas past where we decorated pre-cut Christmas trees with paint and stickers. The residents really enjoyed this festive craft. We talked about painting them in bright and contrasting colours, however few could be tempted to stray from a traditional green tree. One lady did leave hers white to look like a snow covered tree, and painted in blue tinsel.
