Nature Themed Arts & Crafts and Outdoor Activities Popular as Residents Continue to Stay at Home

April 20th, 2020

Residents of The Arc of Essex County continue to have fun while staying at home. On Tuesday, April 7th the residents of the Seven Oaks group home took advantage of the nearly 70 degree weather by decorating kites, then flying them outside and playing yard bowling.

A few days later, on April 10th, the residents of the Marmon supervised apartments tried out some new hair styles thanks to creative members of their staff. On Tuesday, April 14th, the residents of the Nutley group home used their leftover plastic Easter eggs to create peanut butter and bird seed bird feeders. Popular activities across all group homes, including virtual fitness classes, cooking and baking, music, as well as puzzles and arts and crafts continue to entertain and engage residents as they stay at home and help fight against the spread of Coronavirus.
