Picnic Bingo

Hello Kelly, thank you for the picnic bingo and adding the free one in the middle! So many residents would ask me that question. ;) My residents love picture bingo! I want to create my own themes but not sure how to do them, are you able to give me some guidance where to take the pics? I've tried in the past but not much success.

Six months ago, I created a Men's Club that is now part of my calendar once a month. I found it very important to know what they used to do for living and their hobbies whether it was playing sports/fishing/building etc...
I also ask the kitchen to bake squares to be offered during the program and we play mini golf, bowling and electronic dartboard, the program lasts about an hour. It's a small group of men but they enjoy catching up on current news with each other, while enjoying snacks and playing games. ;)

Gelli Plate Prints

Thank you for sharing this activity! I also have never seen this before. I look forward setting this up for the residents to have fun and be as creative as they want! ;))

I came across your site one day as I was looking for trivia games to host for my residents. I'm now a proud member of Golden Carers and I come and look at the site several times/week always finding great ideas and programs that my residents really enjoy. So many valuable resources of all types! It makes me happy to know that I am part of one great big world team of Activity Directors, Therapists, Programmers and others! Thank you/Merci! ;)
