We play this game in our nursing home. I find it works particularly well for our residents when we use songs and poems, as we sing or recite the words once the residents have named it, allowing for an inclusive activity as more residents to participate, either contributing to the guessing element or joining their peers in a sing along.

I have done this game backwards--Build-a-Man--instead of Hangman. It was pretty much the same, Hangman without the noose! We drew in the grass, flowers, birds, the sun, etc. until we had the right answer. :)

My residents love playing this game, and for something a bit different, lately I have been using a theme of "animals", and when we've solved what the animal is, I attempt to draw the animal. The residents ( and other staff) are having a ball watching me draw them. Sometimes they are great, sometimes a disaster, but we all have a great laugh!

I have played this often with using the "noose". Thanks for offering other suggestions as spiders, beetles etc.
