Thank you for sharing this, I would love to do it with my residents however it would be nice to have a ready template so we could download and print it out. I will look it up elsewhere or will make it myself.

What a nice idea Heather. I have also made a coloured fruit salad bingo for the residents that can't recognise numbers. They love it and most of them recognise common fruits no matter how advanced their dementia is.

I often talk about the picture as they are usually child toys or animals so it allows residents to remenicise during the game.
