Patriotic Entertainment for Seniors
There are three very patriotic days that come to mind, the Fourth of July, Flag Day and Memorial Day.
The fun is the music,costumes or decorations and props.
Food!A great idea is a cake with red and white stripes and blueberries for the stars.
If you are fancy, you can use strawberries for the red stripes.
The musicShould be a good mix with patriotic songs such as "Star Spangled Banner" "Yankee Doodle" and "Over There" and songs about America.
I've found that songs like "Oh Suzannah" and "Yellow Rose of Texas" and other state named songs really mix well with the standard patriotic and military theme songs such as the Marine Corps Hymn and The Caissons Go Rolling Along, The Navy Song etc.
Some of the old western and civil war songs have patriotic themes to them.
Of course, you invite all of the residents and maybe families, as well.
So many patriotic songs a very well known so you can get a great sing-a-long going.
A nice touch is usingpatriotic themed napkins and plates and or table cloths.
I like the party favors and props because they really give it the flavor of patriotism.
This works well with residents who are in assisted living facilities, dependent living facilities, who have dementia and Alzheimer's, as well as seniors who live at home.
