Whether you’re an artist, an aspiring artist, or just like to get creative – this month is for you. March has been officially labeled as National Craft Month, so it’s time to get out the fabrics, scissors, clays or paints, and get your imagination going.
If you’re new to crafting, don’t feel pressure to take on any grand projects. Start small, this should be fun! Great easy crafts include string art, paper flowers, or creating scrapbooks—which are also an incredible way to keep your memories organized. If you’re interested in personalizing some items, simple glass paint on mason jars, coffee mugs, or wine glasses is a wonderful way to add a personal touch to items.
With plenty of resources available online and in magazines, National Craft Month is a great time to get out of your comfort zone and try a new craft; perhaps pottery, painting, or learning how to crochet. It’s never too late to pick up a new hobby! For a few ideas, visit – https://craftsbyamanda.com.
In addition to the fun you’ll have and the admiration of your finished product, crafting is also a great way for seniors to stay engaged and boost cognitive function. Learning new skills, or refining old ones helps keep the brain engaged, which has been shown to increase memory and reduce the risk of cognitive decline. The benefits of crafting for seniors are remarkable!
