I found this drawing of St Paul's Cathedral in London, on Gutenberg (Public Domain website) and thought you would like to see it on September's Calendar...
I have not put any coulour on mine - not sure if it needs any?
Up to you...!

|Birthday Fridge Magnet|
Instead of a birthday card, why not make a Birthday Fridge Magnet!
Very easy to do - just use imagination - but you will also need...
A photo or picture
Card to stiffen the picture if necessary.
Card to stick on back (I cut, down to size, an old Playing Card)
A peel-off "Happy Birhtday"
A magnet (mine is a single magnet, but you can also buy magnets in a strip (self-adhesive) which can be cut to size.) Look on Ebay, you'll find them there.
Double-sided adhesive pad if using a single unglued magnet.
Mine is a photo of a sunflower cut in a circle (any shape will work) - you can also use a photo of whoever is having a Birthday, to make it really personal, or any picture or painting - parents / grandparents will love a hand drawn picture, by one of the kids...
You can cut pictures from magazines - fashion, wildlife etc.
If necessary, stiffen the picture by sticking it onto card.
Add a peel-off "Happy Birthday" or whatever the occasion - "New Baby" "Happy Anniversary" etc...
Then stick a piece of card onto the back of the photo / picture.
Attach the magnet.

I hope you enjoy making your fridge magnets with your group of seniors or in fact with any age group - this is something that anyone will have fun doing...
