Can anyone help me with clay pot crafts or any other easy craft ideas for a nursing home residents' craft day.

Read Archives, also here are a few websites.
This website gives some craft ideas that have been made by the Girl Scouts. You might be able to find some fun crafts for the residents to do.
Paint the pots black and look up the Chinese version of love, patience, kindness, peace etc and let them etch the word into the clay pot with the English version as well. I have tons of ideas but at the moment I am busy. I'll be back or contact you directly with some ideas.
You could try getting some small branches, styrofoam & eggs with ribbon or string hangers. Hang eggs on it. Or paint it & plant some herbs or flowers in it in a sunny window. Go on FaveCrafts.com, they have tons of crafts for everything! Literally! Hope this helps. Happy Easter! Karen :D
Hi Margie. I also work at a nursing home running crafts activities. I've started to blog about it to share ideas. Last month we made a Halloween haunted house with cardboard, cellophane and water paints.
This month we're making Fascinators - fancy head bands for the Melbourne cup. Bought a pack of headbands from the reject shop for $3 and the rest were things I had at home.
Next month (Dec) were painting cardboard cut out christmas trees and decorating with stickers.
Hope this helps!
