Crafts for Visually Impaired Nursing Home Patients?

I am looking for crafts for nursing home patients who are nearly blind. They will appreciate being able to still do crafts. Thank you for your suggestions!

They have knitting looms where you just have to weave the yarn in and out of large spools. They could feel the spools instead of seeing them.

They could make a small fleece pillow. Fleece doesn't fray and is easy to work with. Cut 4-inch (or length of scissors) "fringe" around edges of pillow. Have patients/people tie each two adjoining the fringe almost all the way around pillow shape, leaving space to stuff the pillow. You can also go back around the pillow tying a second row with 1 strip from each previous knot for looks.


In this case, double tie only the last knot. Pillows do best with rounded corner shapes. To make the pillow easier to launder, place a plastic bag in the pillow that will conform to the complete size of the pillow and stuff it stuff it with fiber fill and even other plastic sacks; the outside will remain as soft and pretty regardless of stuffing.
