At our church we bought some cheap masks from Oriental trade magazine of animals. We bought double sets so we would have two to every animal. We learned a song related to Noah and the Ark and made a large Ark out of cardboard. We dressed two of the kids as Noah and Mrs. Noah. Then we visited a local Nursing Home sang our songs and reverse trick or treated. We brought the residents little treat bags of crackers, apples, personal care items and such. We had talked to the activities director previous to the day so the kids could use their offering money to purchase items that were meaningful to each resident. They kids had a fun time and the residents truly seemed to enjoy it. The Nursing home director sent a bag of candy back with the kids and the residents sent a thank you card to the kids. All in all it was a good experience for everyone.
