    Easy arts and crafts ideas for senior citizens & kids

    My grandkids and I love to do crafts but being in the Sandwich Generation, my time and energy is often limited, so EASY is my favorite word for arts and crafts. Many of these also make great and easy arts and crafts ideas for senior citizens who are getting older, still love to create but don't have as much energy as in the past.
