I held a Wedding photo reminiscing activity last year... A HUGE SUCCESS!!! I placed all photos on a table covered with a lace table cloth, with a vase of flowers strings of pearls etc.... looked beautiful. I then picked a photo , naming the person whose photo it was , with them telling their story as the photo was passed around the group. I had a staff members wedding photo which I asked all to guess who it was. The room was packed and residents / family members , as well as staff talked about it for weeks. I have just started running a vintage photo group , again a hit, which I will be adding to our program monthly.

We did the wedding photo guessogn game. It was a success but few felt sad because they miss their partners.

We made a sweetheart tree with all the wedding photos. We made hearts and glued the scanned photos and then hung the photos on a tree with lights. We kept it up all week around Valentines Day. They loved it.

The same can be made for baby photos. Collect them and make a game: Place one at time on display (for a couple of days) and leave a sheet of paper and pencil nearby for people to write their guesses :"Who is this?". Give a token prize for the person who guessed first. It gets a lot of attention from residents and staff alike.
