Quilling is an art form that starts with rolling a strip of paper into a coil and then pinching the coil into shapes that can be glued together. You can buy very inexpensive quilling pens or tools from an online supplier and cut up paper stock into 5 mm strips to get started.
Sarah tried this with her residents and they really enjoyed it! Even her residents with limited dexterity and eyesight managed to make some beautiful art. She worked on filling an 8 x 5 frame together with her residents - which they did in about an hour and a half.
There are plenty of you tube videos on the subject too, like this one about making a heart-shaped quilling design for beginners.
