I used this last week, except I did a slideshow of pictures on the tv of all the games and then reminisced about the games we used to play

Get the staff involved, especially with the hula hooping, gets the residents really laughing.
Also remember to ask residents what other games they played, it gets them reminiscing and gives you good ideas for future activities.
