Hold onto your Santa hats because things are getting merry and bright at our Christmas Fair, and we’re crafting up a storm! Move over, Santa’s workshop—our residents have become the honorary elves, sprinkling magic on every festive creation.
This year, we’ve cranked up the excitement with our very own craft stall at the Christmas Fair. The residents are not just feeling festive; they’re crafting up a winter wonderland! From wreaths that rival Santa’s front door to snow globes that could enchant even the Grinch, we’re bringing the holiday spirit to life.
But wait, there’s more! Our crafty elves have whipped up Christmas cards with a personal touch, reindeer hot chocolate cones that Rudolf himself would approve, and wildlife-friendly reindeer food fit for a North Pole feast. It’s a crafting bonanza that even the Abominable Snowman would find irresistible!
And it’s not just the residents spreading the cheer—our Team Members and families are diving into the festive fun too. Four-year-old Georgia, the great granddaughter of one of our residents, even shared her mince pies with the crafters of Cloverleaf. Now that’s a pint-sized Christmas elf in the making!
Margaret, a friend of one of our residents and a crafting extraordinaire, predicts, ‘Rudolf and his friends will be very happy with all of you for making food for them at Christmas. I’m certain you will all have a visit from Santa.’
Hayley, our Activities Lead, is beaming with holiday joy, saying, ‘It’s been brilliant watching the residents getting involved! They love arts & crafts, so I can’t wait to show everyone at the Christmas fair all the wonderful things they’ve made! Families and team members have been a huge support, so I’m grateful for their time and effort. It’s helped increase the fantastic festive feel throughout the home.’
Get ready for a holly, jolly Christmas Fair like never before, where crafts meet cheer and festive magic is in the air!
