Free Resources to help Pickering Adults 55+ during this challenging time. Adults 55+ Resource Guide  


While all of our regular programs and events are currently on hold we've put together a couple of things to help keep you entertained...

  1. Adult Colouring Book this is a great way to relieve stress, break boredom, and inspire creativity. If you dont have coloured pencils that's not a problem... its amazing what you can do with just one colour! Challenge yourself to complete a page using just a pencil or pen.
  2. Online Art Show March 23 - April 5 this is an all ages event where anyone can participate or just browse through the gallery of art. Show us how you are passing time and being creative during social distancing. Upload a photo of your creation in the comments to be a part of the show. If your not sure where to start you can pick a page from our Adult colouring book to submit. You could win you a $100 gift certificate for more craft supplies! Facebook@RecreationPickering
