Throughout the day in our day program, there are several times when one activity might end earlier than anticipated and another activity has not been scheduled or planned to fill the gap. These gaps take place around transition times such as snack, lunch or at the end of the day when waiting for transit to arrive. Participants are often sitting quietly waiting for staff direction of what to do next. Staff try to fill these 10 or 15 minute gaps by suggesting participants utilize the washroom or chatting with some of the participants but some are still left sitting in silence wondering what to do.
Does anyone have any ideas on activities/programs that we could implement quickly and with little preparation time???

Thanks in advance!
