Themes Add Meaning & Fun Posted September 30, 2019


Contributed By: Activities Coordinator Courtney

A major challenge for caregivers is to keep things interesting, stimulating and fun...for everyone including themselves. This takes imagination and planning. I have found that having themes helps a lot. Whenever possible, I like to coordinate activities to a sense of time or an event. And I often coordinate with Chef Amanda to tie in meals and treats. On this day, we enjoyed celebrating fall, it's apple season! We made a 3-D apple craft to bring out creativity and utilize hand-eye coordination. Then Chef Amanda served up a theme-oriented reward. Oh yeah, baked apples with cinnamon, butter and sugar. In the mood for a la mode? We topped the treat with vanilla ice cream. This made for a day of sweet fun.
