Halloween craft with seniors?

My class visits a seniors home every month where we read books and do a craft together. It is a fantastic program.

Last year I chose a pumpkin glyph for the October activity but it was a bust as some seniors couldn't answer the questions so the students just used their own answers.

I'm looking for a Halloween craft that a student and senior could do together and could be finished in a half hour. Thanks in advance for any ideas!

My third graders enjoyed silly pumpkin faces when I taught art. The trick to drawing pumpkins is to start with an open oval and work your way out.

Kind of like:

Then drawing the stem.

Are all the rage. How about a Halloween theme page that they could color. Each couple has the same page (each their own). Senior and child could talk about colors to choose. Where they will place picture, costume they will wear etc. The senior could describe their favorite or scary time about Halloween in the past. Then the child could report to the group. Seniors would love to hear their story being retold.
