December 12 is Poinsettia Day. I like to buy bushes of silk Poinsettia stems,
cut the stems up with a wire cutter and distribute one or more to the
residents. This is a great gift and prop to give to a resident who gets 1:1
visits. It shows caring and can start a great discussion of the Poinsettia
plant. You can buy silk Poinsettia bushes at the dollar store or at Walmart.

You can also do a simple flower arranging project with the cut silk Poinsettia
stems and distribute the finished arrangement to some room bound
residents or you can give them as prizes at another activity.
