We had a PJ day where staff and elders were invited to wear PJs and come to a special morning tea with hot chocolate and marshmallows and special biscuits for a change. Elders enjoyed seeing staff out of uniform and having some fun with teddy bears. etc.

We have had a dress-up day for PJ day as well. Depending on your residents you could; have a bedtime story hour and read the old classic fairytales; Play games but modify them to the theme eg: pin the night cap on the Wee Will Winky. Watch the DVD movie "the Pyjama Game". Have a reminiscing time about bedtime routine when they were a child , clothing, rituals, beds and bedding etc past and present, print off pictures from the net to show. Talk about dreams and dream meanings. If you have crafty residents make felt slippers ( patterns on the net). Have fun!
