We have played this game in our memory care unit for several years. We love it. It is amazing how competitive memory care folks can get.
The end of summer pool noodles can be found for a dollar each. We use the slender noodles as they are easier to hold on to. 10.00$'s invested in 10 noodles and you end up with 20 noodles (each noodle cut in half). It's a 10.00$ investment that will last you for years!

Because we have a resident that is afraid of balloons and breaking balloons, we use a beach ball with the noodles and call it "Whack a ball." We sit along two 8 foot rectangular tables and some residents' family members come and help because the beach ball always goes off the table at the end I'm not at. It's a wonderful moving, shaking and exercising game.

Good Morning Trish,

We use Mylar balloons for this activity. These type of balloons can be found at the Dollar Store, and are blown up with a straw. The can re-refilled as the air leaks out, but a straw will re-fill.
We switched to Mylar because staff are allergic to latex in our facilities.
Have Fun!

We also do this at our facility, we call it seated hockey, the residents sit each team on one side facing each other, with one team aiming to score on the opposite end, the residents love it, they just become so energetic.
