Purpose: to help patients identify positive ways to spend free time and develop new leisure interests
Magnets (or cards) lettered A-Z
Have each person pick as many letters as they want. Starting with the letter A, have the person who drew that letter come up with one activity he can do when he has free time that is appropriate and positive. After he identifies at least one activity, open it up for the group and see how many ideas they can come up with for each letter.
If you want, you can have the participants keep a list for future reference and the next time somone is bored have them pick an activity from the list to try.
