This is a program I did around December, when finals were coming up and I didn’t have time to put on a big program.
Basically what I did was I set up a table with several different kinds of Jell-O, and behind it I put up a bulletin board with different interesting facts about Jell-O. To make it more fun for the residents, I put the Jell-O in small disposable cups so they looked like Jell-O shots. The residents had a lot of fun sucking the Jell-O out of the cups and enjoying the different flavors of Jell-O. A lot of them stayed and read the bulletin board and were amazed at some of the different flavors that Jell-O had come up with in the past. All in all the residents had a good time and it was a very easy program for me to put on.
