We spent the afternoon in the care center making a special gift for all our dads at Atrium Village.
We used pipe cleaners and an assortment of buttons to make a pretty flower arrangement.
This is how they turned out.
Shhh – don’t tell dad! It’s a surprise!
We enjoyed an inter-active program on butterfly’s in the Care Center.
Thank you to Carolyn and Mike Murphy from the Iowa State University Master Gardner Program, for taking the time to come here and share their knowledge of butterflies!
Our last day of Nursing Home Week is Casino Day!
We set up a casino in the Care Center, complete with Black Jack and a Slot Machine!
Thanks to our Hills Bank volunteers that helped out!
We ended the afternoon with a yummy “mock-tale”.
Living Soulfully is the National theme for Nursing Home Week. For this day we decided to live a little silly. So we got some funny props and posed for some pictures!
We also took turns being “Uncle Sam”.
We had so much fun on Farm Day!
We got the chance to dress up as farmers.
In the afternoon, we had a mini-farm in front of our building!
There was Tater Tot the miniature horse
A rabbit named Mr. Bojangles
Cinnamon and Sugar, two little sheep.
A couple of fancy chickens
Thanks to Mike Parker for bringing his tractor for us to see!
Day two of Nursing Home Week is Red, White and Blue Day!
The kids from Kinderfarm Preschool joined us for some music and singing!
Check out this adorable video!
It is nursing home week! We celebrated each day with a unique theme.
Day one is Sports Day.
We had a lot of fun with games like Bowling, Ring Toss, and Basketball.
We also did some “sports” puzzles.
Then we pretended to be a soccer player with a fun cut out poster.
