Family Night

We had Family Night u15958521at the YMCA where I work… The seniors who attend could bring their care givers (family) … Invitation to all!


Caregiver meaning a Mom… a Dad… a brother…  a sister… a brother-in-law…etc. …

Twenty attended… plus eight of us… who work there…

There were refreshments of cookies k2930443, snacks and drinks k0710088

The room was decorated with paper lanterns k7874677 and pastel tablecloths…

Our director greeted everyone… introduced us… and then explained a little about the YMCA’s projects… and our program…cof1737

I have to say, “I feel proud to work for such a wonderful organization”…

We all had some kind of duty…

Jennifer had made a list k11968608… I really like that!… of what our part would be…

Either, decorating… food… prizesk6796886 … etc. …

I was to have a “make it” craft table…

I chose to print out a pamphlet on vegetables and fruits …

“Why seniors have difficulty getting these foods into their diet”… k3954211

and then we painted with “vegetables and fruits”… Cutting applesk2562413 , pears, celery, cucumbers, peppers k0552109and squash in half to use for printing and painting pictures…


They had fun with this activity…

We also had a photo album table that is being made with each participant who is in the program… It is just beautiful!…

Another table was creating a “Family Tree” with Fingerprints

representing leaves of all who belong to your family…


It was nice to put faces to names… meeting who is so important to these wonderful people we care for…

We had a raffle… of tickets k8846194 being drawn for prizes … and then they played BINGOk8504272 their favorite game!… It was a hit!

They lingered talking… and munching…

A good sign they were content and happy with what they had seen…k9427201

  1. I love the Family Tree idea with fingerprints.

  2. Love the painting with veggies and the family tree. These would be great activities for young kids too. Creative as usual! ~ Sheila

  3. Okra makes a really lovely print – who’d have ever thought of that but you?

  4. What a clever way to use vegetables.
