I am building a tractor and wagon planter with some of the residents. I cut the parts out at home brought them into the nursing home and we are painting assembling. My wife works in the activities department and I'm her volunteer. Here is the a picture of the tractor almost completed.
I can not post the residents picture due to Hippia rules and regulations . I see I misspelled volunteering in title but it won't let me fix that.
Will post pictures when finished and residents have planted the flowers. They already have another project they want me to build with my wood working group. That's a pallet wood American flag . Already downloaded the a stenciled pattern to put the stars on the flag. Also my wife heard about the project and she wants 1 for home. So that will be my practice project.
That is really neat. I always like it when I hear a nursing home actually has activities worth something. I always have this Freduian slip when talking about those places and inadvertently spit out "funeral home", which can be hairy when dealing with someone who has a loved one in a nursing home. But, in all fairness, there are a LOT of nursing homes that are like funeral homes. It's truly sad. I can only hope I die before I have to go into one.
Okay, that went off into another tangent, but keep up the good work with those people! I will watch for the upcoming photos.
Gary that is a great project and if there is room in the garden the group could add cars to the train each year. I'm glad to see there is a good activities program in place because it helps keep everyone busy.
