Because November is also the month for Thanksgiving, it is a great time to get your residents together to share what they are thankful for, while sharing a snack.  A very easy program to do for this is to have each resident bring about one cup of some sort of snack that would be good in a trail mix.  Some examples might be peanuts, marshmallows, pretzels, raisins, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, toffee chips, coconut, dried fruit, etc.  Then, at the program, pass around the large bowl, and have each resident add their “snack,” while telling something that they are thankful for.  At the end, you will have an excellent snack that everyone can enjoy together.  Be sure to bring baggies so that you can share any extras with residents who could not make it to the program!

Instructions/Things Needed:

A big bowl
Residents who will participate

Other Considerations:

Bring extra snacks in case some of your residents forget.
Be sure to give your residents plenty of notice (about one week) so that they have time to get a snack to contribute.
