On October 31, our recreational therapy team plus a couple of other departments within our facility planned a carnival for the students. Each unit was given an hour to participate in games and refreshments while dressed in their creative costumes. Some of the games included bean bag toss, cake walk, ring toss, balloon pop, and many others were available to be played. The students used the tickets they won to buy small toys or candy.
After the carnival, each unit filed into the main hall and went “trick or treating”. Employees from all different parts of the building got into the Halloween spirit by dressing up in costumes and passing out candy to the trick-or-treaters. It seemed to be as much fun for the givers as it was for the trick-or-treaters. Halloween was a well-rounded, fun day.
