Calvin's 12 Days of Christmas

Family Engagement

In my quest to make Calvin's life more meaningful and increase his happiness, I am working on helping him learn about time passing and traditions. This year, I am implementing Calvin's 12 Days of Christmas with his companion (he lives there but also provides support to C). I wrote up instructions of what to do with him for each activity in the event I cannot be with them. Check it out:

DAY DATE DAY OF WEEK OBJECT ACTIVITY
1 14 Mon Tree Put up/find tree
2 15 Tues Ornaments Decorate tree
3 16 Weds Cups Drink eggnog
4 17 Thurs Starbucks card Peppermint mocha latte at Starbucks
5 18 Fri Candy cane (peppermint, oil) Make peppermint bath salt
6 19 Sat Cookie cutters Bake and decorate Xmas cookies
7 20 Sun Fleece Make fleece blanket
8 21 Mon Man cookie cutter Make gingerbread men cookies
9 22 Tues Pretzel Make chocolate covered pretzels
10 23 Weds Chocolate Visit Andre's Confisserie

this is very cool! I love this idea for making life meaningful and providing a way to share experiences with others!

My own sister who has multiple disabilities and is DB loves cooking. It was the most meaningful part of our holiday together.

I can't believe you remember him! He's doing well! He just celebrated his 50th birthday!

If you are talking to them, will you ask about his pegboard? I know it was very important to him but I don't know what it was.
