Ok friends. I am looking for craft ideas for my grandfather. Now that he has agreed he can’t work his 10 hours a week at my dad’s work, I am trying to think of things he could do. I took him a couple weeks ago to an adult care day program in our community to see if he would like possibly going a day or two a week and he is trying it out tomorrow! It’s actually an awesome program. I told him it was a Senior Center not an adult day care. He would have never agreed to go if he thought it was day care! More on that next week. If he likes the program and joins regularly, I will share fun moments of his day here on the blog!
CRAFT IDEAS FOR MY GRANDFATHER
In the meantime, he can’t work in his workshop (in our backyard) this winter as it’s too cold and icy. He isn’t that steady on his feet anymore so he really shouldn’t be down there at all unsupervised. I am trying to think of something he could make in the house that doesn’t require cutting wood and making a mess! He loves making gifts for people so I was thinking about making homemade soaps and we could actually share those with all of you? He will probably roll his eyes at me but the man needs something to do in the house! -ha. So before I present the idea of making soaps to him, I wanted to gather a bunch of ideas. Any suggestions? It needs to be something that I can work into my blog too so that I can still work during the day but help him too. Does that make sense? Leave me a comment below or shoot me an email with your ideas! UPDATE: my grandfather joined a adult day care camp! Be sure to read the post to see what it’s all about!
