Mother Stimulates her Brain at 81-Years-Old
Bottles manually decorated by my 81-year-old mother- image by the author. Arts & Crafts are a creative way to unleash your ideas into reality. Both men and women of all ages enjoy them. My 81-year-old mother is big on crafts. She especially enjoys designing wine bottles. Mom uses a variety of materials for her crafts—paint, clay, beads, rhinestones, jute rope, fabrics, buttons, paper, dry leaves—even nutshells! According to Catherine Carey Levisay, a clinical neuropsychologist, “crafting can keep the brain stimulated because it combines the learning and perfecting of new skills with those that are already mastered.”
