I was just going through the activities for January and will use many of these fabulous activities.
I was looking into Mozart's Birthday listed as 6th Jan but noticed that his birthday is listed on Wikipedia as Jan 27th, I have checked several other sites and all state Jan 27th.
From Wikipedia: " Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born on 27 January 1756 to Leopold Mozart (1719–1787) and Anna Maria, née Pertl (1720–1778), at 9 Getreidegasse in Salzburg"
Is this possible to change on the calendar?
Thank you for your hard work it makes our activities position so much better.

ANZAC Day Service

Thank you Solange for your information, we also recognise Anzac Day usually the day before as I don't work public holidays, one little personal touch we do is to recognise residents or their family members who have served in any way from any country, I take their names and read them out during our service, it brings a feeling of them being thanked for their part. As we are a smaller facility this only takes a few minutes but adds to our service.

Hi Debbie,
I recently did an activity on using the scense of smell and instead of using the scentsy warmers I took the scentsy wax testers (I am an consultant but you maybe able to borrow some testers from a scentsy consultant in your area) along and past them around and got them to write down the fragrance, those that couldn't write I helped, we spoke about what the fragrance reminded them of and memories. What I found interesting was that there were several that said they could not smell much at all, just wondering if loss of smell as they age is a common occurance? I was surprised as these waxes are quite strong with out being warmed.
It was a fun activity and bought up many memories and we had a great afternoon chatting about what they liked.

We have a visit from the Kindy children across the road, recently we had an activity where we made salt dough shaped them into beads and baked them in the oven, on another day painted them so they will be ready for the children's next visit so they can string them for necklaces. Lots of fun using the dough and looking forward to the children visiting.
