Nippers and Slippers and gingerbread men

Laughter, song, and the delightful aroma of gingerbread filled the air at Magdalen House Care Home last week as our residents participated in a heartwarming intergenerational activity – Nippers & Slippers!

Fostering connection through play

Nippers & Slippers is a cherished program at Magdalen House. It brings together our residents and young children from the community for an afternoon of playful interaction. These sessions are a beautiful example of the power of intergenerational connection, fostering a sense of joy and community for all participants.

Decorating and devouring delicious treats

Last week's Nippers & Slippers session had a delicious twist – gingerbread decorating! Residents and children alike donned their creative hats (or should we say aprons?), working together to decorate festive gingerbread men. The room buzzed with creative energy and playful chatter as everyone collaborated on these delectable masterpieces.

A feast for the eyes

The culmination of all this creative effort? Absolutely scrumptious gingerbread men! Everyone gathered to enjoy the fruits (or should we say cookies) of their labor, savoring the delicious taste and the heartwarming memories made together.

Building lasting bonds

Nippers & Slippers is more than just an activity; it's an opportunity for our residents to connect with younger generations, share stories, and experience the joy of laughter and play. These intergenerational bonds are truly special, enriching the lives of both residents and children.
