In preparation for Daffodil Day in August, the Arcare Caulfield community worked on creating daffodil flowers from craft suppliers in their art program.
The lifestyle team worked with the clients to create the flowers out of construction paper and pipe cleaners.
At one stage, the clients even had a production line happening, as two groups of ladies were tracing and cutting out the stencils. Everyone got a chance to make their own daffodil with the help from team members.
The afternoon activity was a great opportunity for clients and team members to catch up and form closer relationships. Smiles could be seen around the room, as everyone enjoyed working and spending time together.
The clients commented that the activity was a creative and beautiful craft idea, and that they couldn’t wait to present their creations to either a team member, friend or family member on Daffodil Day.
