CHRISTINE'S THEMES: CREATIVE THEMED ACTIVITY PROGRAMS

By Christine Jennings

Activity Professionals know that themes are a great way to spruce up any activity program. The following themes are a compilation of various holidays, fun themes, anytime themes, and cultural themes. These themed activity programs may be stretched outfor an entire week or condensed into a day. In addition, many of the activity themes can be done throughout the year but I have categorized many of the themes to spread out your creative programs throughout the year. I hope you find these pages easy to use and helpful in your activity planning. Have fun!
