Arts and Crafts for the Elderly

Demand for businesses specializing in arts and crafts, especially for the elderly, are rising and will continue to do so in the coming years as baby boomers reach retirement age. Arts and crafts is a popular way to keep the elderly in senior citizen homes busy and happy, since most of these activities are moderately challenging and relatively inexpensive to setup by anyone in senior centers. We know they do not want to sit around staring at each other all day. Fortunately, there are many activities in arts and crafts available for them.

Since senior citizens are involved here, there are supplies specifically design for seniors who may have problems using tools that most of us takes for granted, for instance, working with a regular pair of scissors to cut paper. Another activity adapted for seniors who may be visually challenged are larger jigsaw puzzles pieces to make it easier for them to see the pieces to put them together.

There are many activities available. Some of these are:
•painting by numbers
•creating wearable braids
•making sand art bottles
•painting with watercolors
•coloring pictures with crayons
•scrapbooking
•making egg mosaic
•making welcome home door name plate
•knitting

We all know as you get older, you have the tendency to lose a little of this or lose a little of that, but we do not need to let it go that easy. Scientific studies have proved that getting Involve in mental activities can go a long in slowing down this process of mental decline for our senior citizens by making a small investing in the arts and crafts.
