Activities Directors-Ideas for January

Activities Directors, other healthcare professionals and caregivers.
Here are some special days in early January.
You can make an activity out of each one of the items listed
Theirs is something in everyday of January to celebrate. In fact, most days there is more than one thing, so pick and choose to your heart’s content and make every day a special one. Here are a few left over from yesterday’s post - Prune Breakfast Month, National Book Blitz Month, Bread Machine Baking Month, Egg Month, Reaching Your Potential Month, Senior Woman’s Travel Month.
