We played for the first time yesterday and had a great giggle. We played as a group and mostly seated. It was heaps of fun and I had only positive feedback from everyone.

I introduced Charades about 4 months ago and it's now a favorite. It took a while to get people out for it but once they saw how fun it was it didn't take long to get a bigger group together. We truly spend an hour laughing! I mostly just use action words (fishing, dancing, typing, building a camp fire, etc) as they are easy to act out. We also do it as a group activity not in teams and that seems to work well. Thank you for some new words to add to the one's I have!

Charades is one of the most fun activities - family played it this past Christmas. It is incredibly challenging to do everything with sign language and not speak while you are doing this. Good on you for posting a version of the game (for free) so that we can use this with our Residents. I will definately be giving this a go.... it is alot of laughs!!
