This is an adaptable game to be played by two teams. It is recommended to make cards in two or three different levels: easy, medium and if the game proves popular make an even more challenging set of cards!

Hey Jodie
Thank you for sharing your great idea

This was fabulous.
We played ours a little different.
We had one person out the front trying to guess the word - a white board behind them with the word written on it so the other residents could see.
The residents in the group were giving clues.
It was very interactive and a great brain game.
We used your words. Thank you for the variety

I have been using this activity for a while now- Used this activity around Mothers Day including tasks that mums perform, occupations- also had a husband visiting who likes to join in & gave him the "giving birth" card - they had around 4 children & he found it hilarious - another male single resident is a retired farmer who I gave the "breast- feeding" card- everyone had a wonderful time- it's amazing how at first they don't leave the sitting position then once they become comfortable with the activity they are really getting the mojo of acting it out - The activity is very inclusive, I prompt & act out with those needing assistance & we went around the circle with each one telling us how many children they had & their names - some spoke about children they have lost - we gave them love & empathy - working life as well acknowledged- we gave recognition to them of a wonderful job well done.

We played this today. It is great fun and very adaptable. We used categories like "What sport am I playing?" or "what animal am I", or "what job am I doing"? Great activity for everyone!
