Daily Sparkle Monthly Plans
The Daily Sparkle monthly plan is intended to help Activity Co-ordinators plan their activities for the coming month.
Most Activity Co-ordinators make a plan of the activities which will be held over the forthcoming month, and although it is sometimes practical to make some changes, this plan provides a solid framework for what is to come.
Our Daily Sparkle Calendar lists the titles of all the articles, quizzes and songs that will be featured in The Sparkles throughout the coming month. Depending on the actual dates, it shows either 4 or 5 weeks of content. The Daily Sparkles contain all the content on the calendar while the Weekly Sparkle features just those columns which are ticked under the ‘WS’ heading.
Knowing what topics are coming up you can now plan in advance specific activity sessions based on the Sparkles content. You might even source supportive materials in preparation. An example might be an article on Bird’s Custard Powder. This could be a good subject for a cookery session. You could buy some Bird’s Custard Powder, milk and sugar (or ask the home’s kitchen to supply you with them), and hey presto, a great session with practical activity, cookery, tasting (sensory), and lots of reminiscence.
As we develop this tool we hope to support you with more helpful links and advice so you can plan stimulating, interesting, enjoyable and fun sessions every day

Daily Sparkle Content Inspired Activity Session Ideas
We have put together a monthly activity session planner which is inspired by the content of the Daily Sparkles. You don't have to do them all or on the same day as the publication but we hope that we can inspire you with some new ideas and ways to enhance your use of the Sparkles.
