Avonlea Assisted Living

We have been visiting residents at Avonlea Assisted Living.  It’s an honor to visit them and spend some precious time with them.

Water Balloon Target game in June 2018: this was so much fun especially because it was so hot. Residents were stronger than the boys as boys could hardly burst a balloon but residents did burst all the balloons with many tries.

Helping Residents make a finger-print canvas in May 2018: We drew a big flower on the canvas and then the boys along with couple of homeschool friends helped the residents fill the flower with paint on the tip of their fingers.

Helping Residents decorate Easter Eggs in April 2018: It was messy but that’s what made it fun! Also, Arjun played piano again for the residents.

Helping Residents with Shamrock Crafts in March 2018: We enjoyed, cutting, gluing and decorating.  It’s so nice to see boys becoming so chatty with the residents.  Absolutely love it!!!

Helping Residents with dab painting in February 2018: This event was a huge success again.  It was so much fun for both kids and residents to create art on canvas or paper.

Helping Residents make Clay Letters in January 2018: This event was a huge success.  It was so much fun for both kids and residents to use alphabet cookie cutters to make clay alphabets.  One of the residents was going to try to taste the white clay and so we have to be careful to make sure that it doesn’t happen but all of them had lots of fun including us.

Helping Residents make Bead Bracelets or Necklaces in November 2017: This was such a fun activity and it was such a joy to see the beaming faces of the residents wearing bead bracelets or necklaces.

Talent Show for the Residents in October 2017: Arjun and Kabir played piano again.  One of the kids did the ventriloquism routine.  After that, homeschoolers and their mom sang few songs.

Music with the Residents in September 2017: Arjun and Kabir both played piano for the residents.  After that, homeschoolers and their moms sang 2-3 hymns.
