Last year I made up a left - right pass the parcel story game. The story was about a couple going to the Melbourne Cup races and betting. It was fun and the residents really enjoyed it.

We did a similar activity, we used 'barbie' horses that I gathered from going to garage sales and car boot sales. All the horses were different colours, and we used string to pull them in from the start line:) The residents loved the game and were very competitive.

In our Day Centre in November,,our Melbourne Cup race day activity is made up with wooden horse shapes which have been attached to a stand up support ,.numbered up 20.You could use filled bottles that you can move..Wehave a large dice which each client/jockey takes in turn to throw.We set up a starting and finishing line, Depending on the number of Jockeys? it works out approx. 6 throws each.If you have a good caller to lighten up the occasion it makes it a very fun day..the first to the finish line is the winner and we have made the trophies or you an buy cheap Melbourne cup lookalikes small versions, at the Sams warehouse or such like shops.
