Fall Fun


Music, Food, and Painting – Good Times!

October 17th, 2018

Our residents of Shoreview Senior Living are keeping busy this autumn season with all the essentials: music, food, and painting! Check out the events below to see what our residents have been up to these first few weeks of October.

Our friends from Silverwood Nature Center taught us about leaves and their changing fall colors, which inspired our watercolor art lesson.

 

Shoreview residents, families, and friends were treated to delicious German food and festive accordion music in celebration of Oktoberfest! Festive wear! So much food!

Happy Halloween!

Shoreview Senior Living Halloween!

With the crisp cool air and a hauntingly decorated atmosphere, Halloween is a perfect time to throw a party. A few friends, some good treats, and the perfect eerie atmosphere can make any party a ghoulish success. So that’s what we did for the Shoreview Senior Living Halloween party.

Management got together and decided to play a game of human dominoes. It was a challenge for some!

Later this morning we started the day with KinderCare coming over for trick-or-treating. The costumes were precious! It’s amusing to see the kids all dressed up. They played basketball and balloon ball with the residents and performed a little skit for us. Kristy had them singing the “Itsy Bitsy Spider” and “If you’re a Ghost and You Know It, Just Say BOO”. Residents sang “I’ve been working on the railroad” for little ones. It was definitely a GREAT time.

In the afternoon, residents enjoyed some ghoulish treats made by chef Holly: spider dogs, gravestone brownies, pumpkin cookies and ghost mousse! We played Bingo, Head Tails, and awarded prizes for best costume! Elon won 1st prize for Paul Bunyan, Carol won second for the spider witch, and Pat won 3rd for the feather boa diva. We ended the party with the Monster Mash dance! Everyone had a spooktacular time.

Hot Cocoa and DJ Steve

Shoreview Senior Living residents sipped on some hot chocolate last Thursday evening. It was too windy for a bonfire, but we stayed cozy inside with the hot drinks and dancing. DJ Steve was their musical entertainment of the night. He played all their favorite songs and added a little trivia in the mix too!

October Trip to Silverwood Nature Center

October 30th, 2017

Monday we took a trip to Silverwood Nature Center, a beautiful place to experience apple pressing. Residents learned how to make apple cider and made some cute clay ornaments and pines for fall. A shout out to Sam and Galby for their time and dedication to making this a terrific afternoon for us all. Residents learned that there are over 2,500 varieties of apples in the US and over 7,000 in the world. The U of M is creating an encyclopedia set which will consist of all apple varieties ever created. I was surprised that there was only one apple that is native to the US , which is the crab apple. We also learned that 1 apple had just as much fiber as 2 servings of Metamucil. We voted on eating the apple!!! At the end of the class we enjoyed our homemade pressed apple cider…YUM!!

Thursday we kicked off the fall season with Oktoberfest! Residents enjoyed Chef Holly’s spread of Bratwursts, Kielbasa which were grilled by Tony who is a resident here, Spaetzle with Gaisburger Marsch, Sauerkraut salad, German potato salad and topped it off with baked apples and rice pudding. Your awesome Holly, it was GREAT!! It was all so delicious! Sue didn’t have too many takers on the Herring but everyone had such a great time. Kristy wore her dirndl while Tony wore his lederhosen. Josh Eidsor came in and played the Concertina which added to the festivities. I loved how the entire staff came together to make this day a huge success. Thank you everyone!!! It was a great way to kick off fall here at Shoreview Senior Living.
