This is also a good question to ask on our facebook group!

Hi Melissa,

Valentine's Day card making in arts and crafts is probably one of my favorite because so many residents want to make something for their loved ones (and staff!) Also, interesting tidbit I just heard on the radio the other day the candy sweethearts with sweet messages on them won't be reshelved this year, so it may make for an interesting "in the news."

We also get our residents to communicate what love means to them, write it down, paint etc, craft an old card into a love heart and place on a board and afterwards we put it on their door..also can laminate if time permits

We have done a baby picture guess who. Very fun. Scan the pictures and give em back so you don't loose any, which i have done. Put up on a board numbered and see who can guess staff and residents>
