Crafty residents at PWL Slave Lake

March 6th, 2020

A recent craft activity at Points West Living Slave Lake gathered residents for a creative and social time. A variety of crafts were available including wood painting, and decorating picture frames and wooden baskets. Everyone got to take something home.

Sweet new decorations

Residents who worked on the frames were able to add their own photos. The ones with baskets were able to add their own treasures, and the painters had sweet new decorations for their suites.

Crafting boost happiness

Recreation coordinator Mailyn Fornoles says residents were very happy with the finished crafts, and the process – which included visiting over coffee and a slice of pie. She adds, “Crafting boosts happiness, improves focus and attention, and improves memory.”
