Crafts have always been one of our number one activities at Chautauqua Adult Day Services. Over the past few weeks participants have been working on making Easter baskets and it has been a huge success. The Easter baskets are made out of recycled materials covered in felt and decorated. Many of our participants have been making more than one basket for themselves. They have made others to give to their family members especially their grandchildren. Once they finish making the Easter basket they choose colored plastic eggs to put inside and fill them with candy.
