Our Storytellers suggested craft for August was this bird feeder made from craft sticks. Everyone chose to make one. Since we have to wait for the glue to dry, we’ll be painting them and adding the hanger in September. Here’s some pictures that we took of the happy group.
Our featured craft for July was to make these colorful parrots out of cupcake papers and fuzz balls. As always, those particpants who preferred to express their creativity through writing a story, poem, or a different art project, were encouraged to do so.
Nick sketched a picture of an aircraft.
Steven wrote a wonderful story that made us all laugh. However, he chose not to share it on the blog at this time.
May Storytellers participants were Michael, Mike, Kim and Steven. We painted landscapes with a combination of water and acrylic paints or wrote stories to share our thoughts. At the end, everyone shared what they created. Thanks to everyone for sharing your talents and for just being the wonderful people that you are.
The wonderful person who founded our Storytellers group, Jessica Honig, came to visit, bringing with her a mindfulness exercise for the group to do together. It was an opportunity to share our feelings and innermost thoughts. We all learned a little more about each other.
Jessica has moved on, to be able to focus all of her energy on her counseling practice. We appreciated that Jessica took the time out of her busy schedule to spend with us. Thank you, Jessica, and please come again !
Our art project was to make Leprechauns from paper rolls. Everyone made theirs a little differently. Three of our group participants collaborated to write a poem. Thank you, Derek, Mike and Kyle for your creative effort !
My wake-up call was a little lazy today, cause I had to wipe the sleep out of my eyes,
Bubba, the dog, woke me up by barking loudly.
I “shhh’d” him, but it didn’t work.
I had a cup of coffee and two donuts, and that was it.
I would say that I had a bar and a banana,
Cereal always tastes better soggy.
We all collaborate together,
The End !
I was searching for a turkey, and I came across a feather,
I chopped it into pieces,
and I put it down and kept walking.
Lucky that it didn’t start talking !
I took out my box call, I hope the turkey didn’t fall,
when he was running at me.
I hope he didn’t have no fleas, but I had to sneeze.
The wind, plus the acorns, plus the leaves, plus the breeze,
Covered my scent, smelled like the trees.
Thanksgiving at ease……
