sounds like you have it all covered, it is hard to engage a lot of residents especially males of different ages, smaller group activities not to competitive and some softer music in the background the environment maybe to hyper and this seems to set the mood- I love all the thought you have put into your ideas, can you set up small activity stations throughout your unit and set up some residents in each and you move around, maybe by the time you return you can guide them onto something else and they can move to the next activity

we asked for donations of items of nice china for high tea it was amazing what people donated to us, we now have a beautiful selection to hold our high teas, it is best to ask for specific items and a little explanation of what you are going to do with them- lots of families cleaning out the homes of people coming into care prefer it go to good use than throwing out , knitting needles and wool for the knitters group anything made can then be raffled off, magazines for collages, you can get a lot of travel pamphlets and hold travel sessions see how you go with some of these ideas

what are the best things to put on a fiddle mat or blanket I have seen many but not actually sat and watched the residents for any length of time to see what is the best design for them

I always find sea shells, pine cones & leaves are great as well these are renewable items and can change with the seasons, lavender and different types of flowers and herbs, also xmas decorations bells tinsel coming up to December you could have seasonal boxes and write up what can go in them to help staff hope this has been helpful
