Gravesend Care Home Residents Show Creative Flare with Firework Artwork
With very few fireworks displays taking place this year, residents of Edward Moore House Residential Care Home in Gravesend decided to get creative to enjoy some fireworks fun.
Armed with their aprons and paints, crafty residents of the Trinity Road residential care home spent a morning painting abstract style firework displays. Using homemade paper tools, which generated a splash and splatter firework effect, the end result was some lovely bright paintings depicting a fireworks night scene.
And the creative fun continued into the next day, as the residents also made some lovely poppies, to display in the home’s windows. With no public act of remembrance taking place this year, the community was encouraged to place a poppy in their window, to show their respects. So, the residents just did that, cutting and sticking some giant red and black poppies to brighten up the windows.
Melanie Martin, Deputy Manager at Edward Moore House said: “Our residents here really enjoy their craft mornings, they find them very therapeutic and enable them to show their creative side, they also enjoy nattering together over a cup of tea!
“With the second lockdown underway, we’re all keeping busy with our usual activities and trying to keep as much normality as we can, I’m sure there will be plenty of seasonal crafting over Christmas.”
