Thank you Golden carers for all the great ideas. My residents really enjoy the quizzes and some of the craft activities. They especially want "This day in history". I try to make it a morning ritual after the newspaper reading. This month there are so many great ideas for St Patrick's day, many I have printed off to use. I take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy St Patrick's day. Here is my beautiful cat, she is much more photogenic than me!
What do you think about these ideas

What about this scavenger hunt??
There is also a DIY horse racing game that looks like a lot of fun and that can be easily modified for other sporting events
What about making activity packets for your residents??
What about the ideas in this article
