To Begin:

  1. First, start by spreading a layer of peanut butter on your toilet paper roll using your knife.
  2. Next, pour the bird seed to fill the paper plate.
  3. Like a rolling pin, roll the peanut butter covered toilet paper roll in the seeds. The seeds will stick to the peanut butter coating it in seeds.

Happy DIY Friday! Running out of time to decorate for fall? Don’t worry! These 5-minute pumpkins are the perfect do-it-yourself activity for the holidays.

You Will Need:

  • Full Toilet Paper Roll
  • Bandana or 22 x 22-inch fabric of your choice
  • Stick
  • Green Pipe Cleaners

To Begin:

1. Start with a full, unused toilet paper roll.

2. Next, unravel your toilet paper roll partially.

3. After your toilet paper roll is unraveled, loosely rewrap the toilet paper around the roll. Be sure to twist as you roll to really round out your pumpkin.

4. Next, lay your bandana or 22 x 22-inch piece of fabric flat on the surface in front of you and place your toilet paper roll right in the middle.

5. With a corner of the fabric in hand, fold and stuff it into the center of your toilet paper roll. Repeat with all four corners.

6. Next, stick a plain old stick from outside into the center of your pumpkin to create the stem.

7. Finally, grab a pipe cleaner. Twirl it around your finger or a pencil to make it curl. Stick it in the center of your pumpkin for a finishing touch!

Clay n’ Play

Therapeutic Recreation Week Day #2

You will need:

  • Play Doh or air-dry clay
  • Rolling Pins
  • Cookie Cutters
  • Parchment Paper

There’s something about squishing Play Doh and clay that’s so satisfying! To start your own molding stations, first lay down parchment paper at every seat, as well as a tub of clay or Play Doh. Provide rolling pins, cookie cutters and let your residents have fun! If you use air-dry clay your residents can paint and keep whatever they make. Play Doh, on the other hand, is great if you want to reuse it for another time.
