I am currently updating our activities station. Its a small cupboard with drawers. I have labels for books, craft, card games, table games bingo, and puzzles. I am starting to add more content and swap out things. weekly to ensure the carers and myself always have something on hand. I have space on top of the cupboard and on a shelf for more things. What should the 6th category be, and what should I put on top that will be functional, but also look nice? Any ideas?

Hi Hadassah
What comes to my mind is trivia

Or reminiscing

Or music

Or seasonal
activities which you could switch depending on the season and of course or holiday

Hello Hadassah,

I know for my residents I have quite a few who love coloring. Everything from the very detailed to basic color by number.
