Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Activities for Seniors | By Debbie Davison

When to Celebrate?

Valentines day falls on the 14th of February every year
A great activity for everyone on Valentine’s Day is to spend the afternoon making chocolate-dipped strawberries and while they are setting talk to everyone about love.

What was it like dating in the good old days?

Encourage everyone to share stories about life and love, I’ve done this before and heard some funny, wonderful and interesting stories.

Serve the chocolate-coated strawberries with tea, coffee or sparkling wine to celebrate Valentine’s Day.

This is an easy cooking activity to do for Valentine’s Day - Simple recipe below.
