Phoenix Dining & Activity Center - During the month of February everyone enjoyed making crafts for Valentine's Day. Center participants, Bonnie Frawley and Joanne Czajkowski instructed the craft class on how to make this adorable gum ball craft.

Best of all we provide all the supplies, the crafts are yours to make and take home with you.
