Activity Ideas

  • Display the rollers and other hairstyle-related items on a table. Discuss what was the most popular hairstyle of people's day. Did they do their own hair? Did anyone have a perm? Did anyone manage to do a beehive? Show the popular styles of the 1960s by clicking on the link:
  • Ask a member of staff to paint participants' nails. Have a number of different shades to choose from. Ask if anyone ever had a beauty treatment at a salon. What did they have done? Was it for a special occasion? Have a game to see how many make-up brands they can name (Rimmel, Max Factor, No 7, Boots 17, Estee Lauder, Maybelline, Avon, Revlon).
  • Plan a dance party 'Hop' in your care home. Make invitations for 'Guys' and 'Dolls', decorate with Vintage Bunting and play Party Megamix 50s/60s to get everyone up. Ask a local dance school if they would be willing to come and put on a dance display of jive/rock and roll.
