Hi Tina
Hi, I like to do a singing along with exercise or another idea is to do trivia with exercise
Choose a song that they residence know and like and then ask them to help you make up moves that go with the song

Hi Tina,

Playing music ( hits from the 50s and 60s) works for my residents if they are bright and upbeat songs. It seems to jolly them along. I also include ball catches with different types of balls for their co-ordination. I have a bigger ball that they like to throw and kick to each other. Sometimes we include a round of quoits to finish off with. All the best, Judy
