Spring Craft for Great Grandma

My Grandmother, Lennox’s Great Grandmother, unfortunately fell down some steps a few weeks ago and after 2 weeks of undiagnosed pain, they finally figured out she has a broken leg. Now she has to be in a full leg cast and wheelchair for the next 8-10 weeks. She technically lives alone, but her apartment is attached to my aunt & uncles house, so she isn’t really alone. Either way though, she is getting bored and lonely. She can’t get out of the house and it’s not even nice enough weather where she lives yet, to go outside on her deck.

So, we were put to the task of trying to cheer her up, from half way across the country. I figured some crafts from Lennox would put a smile on her face when they came in the mail!

Lennox got to work on Saturday morning and painted a table full of paintings, hand prints, etc. I turned to Pinterest for some inspiration and ended up with some hand print flower bouquets! handprint-flowers

I think they came out pretty cute. We did a few bouquets, Lalaloopsy coloring pages, other hand prints (she liked having me print my hand and then putting her print next to mine, etc. She asked to paint my face… I had to stop her at that point 😉lennox-painting3 lennox-painting2

She likes to multi-task — paint and watch television… this kid!lennox-painting

I’m going to keep having her make things every week or two and send it to her Great Grandma – do you have any suggestions of cute spring time toddler crafts that will make great grandma smile?
