Hi everyone I m looking for Xmas Party day activities. Can someone help me with that?

I've organised a Super Christmas Bingo, with prizes for all. On top of the usual prizes, I've made small personnalised present for each of them present (there will be about 15 staying that day). I will ask all of them to choose one number within the range of numbers before starting the game. (This way even the ones that don't want to play will still get something and be interested. When the number is called I'll give them their presents.
I've found necklaces in charity shops for the women (about 2euro each) and I've laminated pictures of their hometown/place for the men. Plus a couple of chocolates each.

I realise it may be a bit late to start on a project like that at this stage but it may give ideas.
Good luck

we use the right left game and our residents love it. I put something small (usually from the dollar store) in a gift bag with tissue paper and each person gets a bag but they are not allowed to look in the bag. I read the story and every time the word right is said everyone passes the bag that they have to the person on the right of them and when the word left is said then everyone hands the bag to the person on the left of them. When the story is over they get to open the bag in front of them and keep whatever is in it. We have done candy bars or scarves, socks and or any little trinket. Its a great time and they all look forward to the game when we play. Since the first time we played ity our participation level has tripled.

Hope this helps you out a little bit.

Go on Pinterest or google right left stories. They have a lot of different ones to choose from.
