Intergenerational Egg Hunt

Last year we had an indoor (all weather option) Easter egg scavenger hunt that proved quiet popular & even the families joined in when visiting. We printed out x12 different A4 Easter eggs with coloured patterns on them and placed them around the home on the walls for residents to walk around & find. They were given a sheet with all the different eggs pictured on it & were asked to tick them off when they found one. Spare tick sheets & marker pens were left in the main entrance Cafe to help themselves. Some eggs were easier to find than others & the residents all enjoyed the game element to it. The residents could then return to the lifestyle office / activity room with a completed tick sheet & claim their Easter egg treat.
We would randomly ask where they found some of them to check they hadn't cheated but they all played fair anyway! A few fluffy toys were available as an alternative prize.

Hi Everyone. Im new on the GC forum & currently a lifestyle / leisure & health student doing my work placement in a local aged care home in Hastings, Victoria, Australia. I love all the ideas, suggestions & resources you all provide for each other! I have been searching & scrolling for activity ideas with a Japanese theme for the upcoming Olympic Games week. I noticed there isn't much on the Origami paper craft on here & found this great website to share with you:

Short Easy Exercise Routine

This is a cute rhyme! Im going to try this as a quick warm up exercise routine whilst the group are waiting for something else - sneaky add-in physical activity!
