Following on from the successful pumpkin carving session Harbour House held at Halloween, individuals at the home requested more arts and crafts sessions in the lead up to Christmas. Staff researched ideas and gathered inspiration which they then put forward to the people we support. The people at Harbour decided to make a Christmas wreath using their hand prints. This idea was a perfect idea to get everyone involved and also incorporated a sensory aspect for the arts project. Individuals at Harbour helped staff to gather supplies and set up the wreath making station. Staff helped everyone to paint and print their hands on the paper, and then got stuck in themselves too! Staff then cut out the dry hand prints and with help, placed them in a circle, creating a wreath shape. They then stuck them together and added a few Christmas berries and hung it up. Staff and the people we support spent a good while finding their hands and enjoying other to guess which hands were theirs on the wreath. It added a very christmassy feel to the hallway and makes everyone smile when they see it.
Well done guys!
