ABOUT CARING CRAFTS
Caring Crafts provides unique craft kits, tools and supplies to adults who may have fine motor skill problems and/or cognitive issues. The kits are simple to make, do not have tiny parts and there is no precision work involved. Tools and supplies are selected for versatility and ease of use. Since the final product is important, the finished project will be attractive and enjoyed personally or given as a gift. The goal is to empower creativity and self esteem which will improve well being.
All kits and other items can be purchased individually or in bulk for groups. Judith teaches successful craft workshops for seniors with a range of budget guidelines. In addition, she consults with organizations to train their activity personnel, evaluate inventory of supplies and tools, enhance their creative programs and develop fundraising initiatives to fit the needs of an organization and/or special event.
