Adult Day Servicse 10th Jun 2014 Activity Leaders
Hi all,
Just wondering if anyone has played the game Pick a Box with their members / clients.
We work with senior adults who all live in their own homes & come to our groups daily.
They are all quiet mobile & like to be involved.
Thanks Sandra

I have done this with the ones from Activity to Go (no longer available) and the residents loved it. I had about ten boxes with numbers on them and asked the residents to choose a number rather than a category. A very successful and fun game.

I have also used the Pick a Box quizzes from the Activities 2 Go magazine and found them to be OK with my low care residents. I'm also lucky enough to still have copies of another publication from 10-12 yrs ago called Focus on Activity and they have great trivia quizzes in them and my residents really enjoy them.

This worked really well for me. Get 3 boxes for men, 3 for women and 2 for any gender. In each box place an object ( cufflinks for men, compact case for women etc). Invite a person to choose a box and then show it to everyone and then talk about it. Great reminiscing activity!
People over 70 will also remember Bob Dyer and Pickabox on TV. See if you can YouTube an old session.
