Before most holidays our 4-H club visits several area nursing homes. We deliver cards (mostly handmade by the kids) and candy. For Easter, our club places the candy inside plastic eggs.
As evidenced by the following photo, Mary Claire helped herself to a piece of candy. Unfortunately for her, she was caught and didn't get to enjoy the fruit of her sneakiness. I figure that much candy and only one misappropriated piece = success!
After we finished the eggs, we started making cards. We still have a few weeks before the visit but our club hands out a card for each piece of candy. That's a lot of cards to make. Each family brings a set amount but since we have more 4-H members in our family, we decided to contribute a few extra.
Even Mary Claire and Henry made some cards. I wrote the sayings they colored them and added stickers.
