Jacqui, We are a small facility each year we have a Grandparents day when grandchildren are invited to come along to visit, with games, BBQ also pets are also invited. We also hold a family fun day which includes a concert, finger food, lucky dips etc. These occasions are really enjoyed by all. Also during the year we use our craft groups to make items that we can sell on these days to fundraise. ie painted plant pots, bookmarks, cards, bric-a-brac stall.

We have also done this activity, but we bought cheap terracotta pots and in our craft group decorated them, this took at least four to five activity sessions from decorating to planting the residents then had their own individual pot.
