Laughing Together - Five Activities to Get Residents Smiling

I started the Laughing Basket. Everyone gets an item out and wears it, or it may be a toy, or just a funny item. I have extra large crazy glasses, jacks, clown noses, rubber chicken finger sling shots, emoji stress ball, bubbles, etc. They seem to really enjoy the items.

Hi Mary, I have a small exercise group that loves to exercise to fun songs. We row to "Row Row Row your boat" or pretend to ride a bike to the fun song of "Bicycle built for two". So its more fun and they don't think about the exercise. I also started a monthly drawing and whenever they come to my avtivities they get their name in a basket. At the end of the month A winner will be drawn. ( They love prizes)
Also, a small dnce group, even chair dancing is fun. Hope this helps!
