Bird Bingo

Thank you so much for this colourful version of Bingo. The residents love it.
The only, constant, discussion from my residents is that the Chicken is a Rooster so I have to say "The bird that says Chicken but is a Rooster", otherwise I am reminded again that I am wrong.

Thank you for this advice you gave Deb as I was actually looking for help with this same situation.

Aussie Bingo

Can you use your work copier to enlarge. Just place the A4 across the scanner then press A4 - A3 then press 100%. That should enlarge the whole page, print and all.

Easter Carrots Craft

We made these for Easter and the residents thought they were really nice and , once managing how to roll the Carrot into a narrowed cylinder, had a great time.

How to make an Aussie Billy Can

I am going to see if I and our residents can make a paper version using tins to wrap the paper around and seal underneath so they can then decorate how they like with Australian flowers/animals , etc. A lot of my residents enjoy cutting out, colouring, etc. so they may actually give this a go.

A local zoo as a lot of people like animals or can you find some one who can bring in pets. We had staff ride their horses in and the men loved this. Is there a mens shed nearby?
