Easy Crafts for Elders

For elders, crafting is more than just an enjoyable hobby. Arts and crafts help to support a senior’s mental, physical, and emotional health. The act of crafting, no matter the project, provides light exercise, improves dexterity, and sharpens the brain, as well as boosts morale and fosters a sense of community among elders and those they craft with. Above all, completing a project instills in an elder an invaluable sense of pride and accomplishment.

While creating any art project can enhance one’s life, there are certain projects that are especially well-suited to seniors. Some easy crafts for elders include:

  • Scrapbooking and making a collage. These tried-and-true projects are extra special because they can involve personal photographs. Elders can use pictures that hold sentimental value for them or whatever else they find beautiful or compelling to create their masterpieces.

  • Polymer clay projects. Working with polymer clay is a great craft for elders because it is simple yet incredibly versatile. Also, the clay is so soft and malleable that it is ideal for those with limited dexterity. The possibilities are endless when it comes to polymer clay craft ideas: picture frames, vases, beads, and bendable bookmarks are just the beginning. One seasonal idea is to create different types of polymer clay holiday decorations.

  • Making a bird feeder. This is a fun project at any age, but the real fun begins after the feeder is crafted and placed outside. An elder will continue to get enjoyment out of this craft time and again as new birds show up to snack from his or her handiwork. Doing arts and crafts is one of the best ways an elder can spend his or her time. Taking part in these activities is good for the heart, mind, and soul and creates special memories as well as unforgettable pieces of art.
