Add a positive word to the Gradtitde Jar that starts with first letter of your name,
This is one of many free activities.
Golden Carers has 1000s of activities and resources for senior care.

This activity fosters gratitude and positivity among residents and staff.

I created a Gratitude Jar Poster and laminated it with a note that said:
Add a positive word that starts with the first letter of your name

A real jar can be used! 

Provide Sharpies, colored pens, and Post-it notes.

Invite residents and staff to stick their positive words onto the Gratitude Jar poster.

I was fascinated as residents and staff came up with so many different words that initiated discussions about showing gratitude and being thankful.

This was a simple yet effective activity that really engaged our residents!
