Everyone has a favourite book, film or story. This exercise enables residents to talk about the stories they love, sharing memories and getting to know each other.
Collect some old magazines so that residents can cut out pictures and make collages, before explaining their story to fellow residents and staff.
If possible, print out photos of each resident so that they can include themselves in their collage story.
Perhaps residents could dance under an umbrella like in Singing in the Rain? Or be part of one of Roald Dahl’s stories?
The creative possibilities are endless!
