We threw a beach party for residents as part of a “beating the winter blues” theme week. We had beach type music, food including tropical fruits, mocktails (nonalcoholic mixed drinks), and hot dogs cooked in the fireplace. There was also a costume contest for the best dressed for the Carribean. Another contest to consider would be limbo. The program lasted approx. an hour and a half to two hours. Residents were really interested and enthusiastic about the program.

Instructions/Things Needed:

Beach music
Fruit (pinapple, oranges, grapes, kiwi, melon, mango)

Other Considerations:

Start preparing the fruit well in advance–possibly ask residents to help.
Advertise in more creative ways–cut a beach towel
