RA Active Program Halloween - recyclable pumpkins! Have your residents come out and paint them / draw on them to make their own jack-o-lanterns. Then, place them around the hall to decorate for Halloween. When it's over, either let the residents keep them, or recycle them. Great for environmental awareness education!
My first RA program was pretty successful! I kept it simple and did Video Games and Cookies. I just set up a Nintendo 64 with Mario Kart and had some board games in the community center and baked cookies while everyone played and talked. Had about 20 residents out of 56. - RA life
