Activities for Seniors | By Debbie Davison
Making a Poi is a great way to celebrate Waitangi Day (New Zealand) or to run as a very simple and fun craft activity in any aged care center around the world.

Corded Sock Poi is easy to make and light weighted craft. Moreover it takes less than 4 minutes to complete. You can follow the step by step instructions and demonstration video below. 

Once you have made your Poi you can use them for some light movement exercise with your residents.
