Making art for seniors encourages kids to brighten the days of senior citizens. From airplanes to animals, drawing a favorite scene and then giving it to a senior citizen makes a great social awareness activity for kids.
What You'll Need:
- Large envelope
Many senior citizens find themselves in rest homes far from their own kids and grandkids. You can help brighten their days with a splash of color -- bright and lively artwork only you can give.
Step 1: Draw and color your favorite scene -- anything from animals to airplanes.
Step 2: Add your first name and your age.
Step 3: Glue your artwork to cardboard, and mail it off to a nearby home for the elderly.
If you can share art once a month, your gift will keep on giving. If you can enlist your entire class to join in the fun, you'll inspire dozens of smiles and warm feelings.
