New Year colouring and firework paintings at Lukestone Care Home

Happy New Year!

On Friday 30 December, we welcomed the New Year colourfully here at Lukestone Care Home!

Using a variety of sharpie markers, our residents expressed their creativity with some colouring, excitedly choosing different colours to make their black and white pictures come to life.

Brian chose to use strong colours like black for his art, and made it work wonderfully. Others used bright colours which brought out their own interpretation of how they wanted their new year. Once Betty was finished, she happily showed off her work to us.

When they had completed their art piece, our ladies and gents happily smiled for a picture. Great work everyone!

Firework fun

For the New Year we also made our own fireworks pictures, created with love and loads of paint!

Our residents picked their colours of choice, mixed them in their own way and started painting with the folded and cut, long strings of paper, which were rolled up in a circular shape. This was prepared beforehand for them to use as the main tool for the activity. After demonstrating how they could use the tool to make their fireworks, they were surprised to see them work so smoothly!

Everybody had so much fun with the painting and some residents couldn’t get enough of it! They did not let their colour palates dry as they kept adding more colours and more paper to create varieties of fireworks with a different interpretation to every detail.

Brian said he wanted to name his work ‘Candy box‘ because he could see strawberries and chocolate all over his painting. Meanwhile, Bob described his fireworks with visuals of a battle in the sky between animals and humans.

Mary was very satisfied with her pieces and mentioned to Linda that she got her talent from her grandmother who was a painter.

Our residents really enjoyed and appreciated the activity, and they thanked us for such a fun time.
