World Globe Coloring & Captions

Also, get an actual globe and spin it and look about facts on each country. Then YouTube the country's landmarks. Name its capital, language, money, population and exports. Or buy inflatable globes and toss around and ask residents to pick a country. Put up a world map so residents can see where the country this. Ask staff to share where they are from and tell residents a little about their country and its people. Promotes diversity, inclusion and national pride!

For World Radio Day on Feb 13, Sydney recreational staff can arrange a visit to the Radio Museum in Kurrajong. Very interesting for radio buffs.

Hi Kim, put this request for entertainers in your facility newsletter. You may be surprised at what friends and family are prepared to do. I have a 30 -piece band that comes in twice a year. Also ask if anyone has special collections which they would be happy to show off. I have a gentleman who collects telephones and he has a wonderful array. His wife collects perfume bottles and has done a lovely Mother's Day reminisce program with our residents. Your local social clubs including Lions and Rotary may also have musicians in their midst. Good luck!
