Winter Campfire

A great comment Owen and well done....bravo!! Once scouting and guiding are in your blood it never goes. The residents would remember being a part of likewise organisations too...eg Red Cross Brigade etc and these too have great ideas..give it a go everyone you and the residents will enjoy

Anzac Day Wreaths made from plastic spoons

I have used a Christmas wreath and made handmade poppies to go on it and we have used them for years, I have also added at times small red Christmas lights to the centre of the poppies.

How to Conduct a Reminiscing Session

When I do reminiscing I try to have visual and tactile objects...eg women's reminiscing I use two old style beauty cases and have things in them like a corset with stockings, petticoat, jewellery, cosmetic mirror, dressing table set...hairbrush etc, lipstick, evening bag, hair net, curlers (the metal ones), scarf etc. This always brings about many memories and discussion - especially when I bring the corset out!!
