Oaklands Residents enjoyed taking part in an art and craft session by cutting out and gluing templates to make these lovely butterflies. When making the flowers, we used cotton buds which was a tricky and sticky activity taking time and patience. With perseverance and support from the Lifestyle team the results were very rewarding. Arts and crafts is always a fun activity, it stimulates the brain, promotes and maintains cognitive abilities, provides a way to stimulate minds and engagement. A creative activity can reduce anxiety and depression as well as offering the power of choice and decisions.
