Great ideas Josephine. We too play the pick a box type activity, however call it 'envelope bingo'. Our clients love the game and we have used it with various themes; Summer reminiscence, Christmas, Valentine's Day etc and included sharing a joke, answering a question, winning a prize etc.

Hi All, Just another thought which has worked well for us. I searched for Irish Dancing Schools in my area a couple of years ago and just put in a call, to see if any children/parents willing to come to our facility. This dance school put me in touch with a Dance Teacher who organises children to don traditional costumes and do a half hour dance demonstration. This has gone down extremely well and of course very cheap as they donate their time. I then back up with a pick a box type activity - number envelopes, blue tack on the white board, put in different quiz / information or we need to sing an irish song. In each envelope is a green lolly pop. Residents pick out a number from a basket to correlate to the envelope. Our Residents loved it. A satisfying activity and one that does not break the budget !
