Sparking an Intergenerational Christmas Connection this year!

24 November 2021

2021 has been another hard year, especially for intergenerational connections. We want to inspire you to spark an Intergenerational Christmas Connection and have created some resources to help!

We have updated our 12 Ways To Do Christmas Differently 2021 resource packed full of safe ideas to bring generation together and spread some joy and love. Perfect for schools, youth groups and care settings as well as within your own family.

Our An Ideas Guide to Spark Generation Connections this Christmas has been designed specifically for Education settings (schools, colleges and nurseries) to provide some inspiration for intergenerational connections this Christmas!

We have developed an Intergenerational Christmas Bauble. The perfect way to send a message of hope and love to a member of a different generation. This would be the perfect activity to get everyone in the festive spirit and can be used in loads of different ways:

  • Laminate your bauble and hang it to use outside 
  • Do a bauble swap with another group of a different age
  • Set up a wishing tree in your local community
  • Set up an outdoor Christmas Concert and use your baubles as invitations
  • Share them through a Pen Pal scheme
  • Use as gift tags onto Christmas presents 

We would love to see your designs and hear your message of hope. Make sure to take photos and tag us on our Facebook page or Twitter @LinkGenNI
