This is a simple but fun alternative to a sight seeing trip or as we call them a Sit & See. Residents stay on the bus so minimal staff are required.

I like the use of pictures and words on the card. I did a similar thing with words only to encourage observation on a 30 minute drive to a waterfront café. (pre pandemic) I added a couple of things at the destination such as yachts on storage shelves and the commuter ferry.
In lockdown I've used this type of card to encourage looking outdoors when Spring was beginning - 3 birds on the lawn, white blossom, a spring bulb in flower.
Another version was focused in the homes of people we'd normally have at our centre. I asked them to mark off things such as a favourite item of clothing, something they inherited, a photo with 3 generations in it. There are so many variations possible with the knowledge we have of the participants and our imaginations!
If treats can't be provided due to physical distance, I have suggested that a treat be had when the card is full - which has included 9 - 12 items to find.

Great Idea! Especially now with the pandemic we have to keep our residents away from people outside of our home. We have our own bus so they are going to love this. Thank you..
