Do you have bits and pieces of ribbon, buttons, paper doilies, scraps of fabric, paper plates, dried or silk flowers, or any odds and ends to make a colorful Easter Bonnet for Seniors living in a healthcare facility?
I googled HOW TO MAKE EASTER BONNETS and there are lots of ideas that are very easy and inexpensive to make. I have 15 senior healthcare places scheduled to visit in April and May. The average group is comprised of 15-20 ladies.
Putting out the call for assistance. Is there a group of kids, scouts, a womens’ club, a Mom’s group or any individual that would like to do any part of this project? The Drop Off Locations are in Chalfont, West Norriton and Lafayette Hill, PA.
I have four healthcare facilities scheduled for the week of April 11th. So, if anyone has any “helpers” available over the weekend, we sure would appreciate your help… if you would like to “adopt” any part of the project.
This is a creative and fun community service project. The bonnets will look so cute and festive. They will be given out during our visits in April and May.
I can picture the ladies selecting the Easter Bonnet and singing along with Bing Crosby, IN YOUR EASTER BONNET, WITH ALL THE FRILLS UPON IT……..YOU WILL BE THE GREATEST LADY IN THE EASTER PARADE…..
Here is Bing Crosby’s version of the song:
I am picturing a paper plate as a base, then punch two holes to tie a ribbon to each side, tie the ribbons under the chin, decorate the top of the plate with a few colorful flowers and odds and ends…….and voila! Please, nothing expensive, just a few Dollar Store things to decorate any type of paper plate to make a colorful hat! Or decorating little things that you have around the house.
Is there a church or synagogue youth group that would like to help with this project? Sometimes it is the little things that can really brighten a person’s day! Like a fun Easter Bonnet!
Thank you so much.

Thank you so much. I look forward to hearing from you.
