Our community is right across the street from a school. K through high school.
I would love some suggestions for intergenerational activities that were successful in your communities.
Thank you!

Hi Sylvia
I like most of these activities
Also, we had students come in to help decorate for the holidays

Kindergarteners came and sang some of their songs for us.
(limited activities because of COVID restrictions)

They march through the dining room on Halloween.

The Waldorf School Kindergartners make their own dolls. They came and had a naming ceremony in our larger room. Then they walked around and told us the names they gave to their dolls. It was a great experience for the children and us.

we do a reading group with the kids in our community - it is good for the kids and the residents

Thanks, ladies for the suggestions! I am excited to try some of these activities!
Every time that the kids come over, I see how valuable this relationship with the school is.
We have such a special job working with these seniors! God bless each of you.
