Hi I just wanted to thank everyone for their helpful advice regarding the large Dice. Madeline I went to Harts Sports at Zillmere and was blown away with the amount of great resources they had. Thank you for the tip. Harts Sports its worth checking out heaps of great resources.

I was wondering if any one could give me some info on where I could purchase some large die that we can roll on the floor in our centre. In Brisbane preferably. Also I am after a Crosly Entertainment Centre to play all our old records on to make it more nastalgic for the clients. If anyone can help I would appreciate it.

Can anyone tell me where I could purchase a ball scooper up to use when retrieving the small balls used in indoor bowls at our facility. I know you can buy them but just don\\\'t know where to look for them. This will certainly prevent any bad backs due to bending down all the time!!

Hi Anne I have done the 12 days of Christmas with my residents the past 2 years, What I do is I pick out 12 residents, each one represents the day of christmas, I give them a printed piece of paper with just the day that that are on it and when we sing the song when we get to that particular day only that resident sings that line. We have so much fun with it as they usually forget who's turn it is and have to rely of me to point at them when its their turn. I hope this helps your activity I found that not everyone remembered what each day was so it works much better if they can read it to remind them. I thought this year I might try the Australian 12 days of Christmas!

I was one of the Diversional Therapists at the workshop and was delighted to have met you personally. Your site is terrific and full of useful ideas. Keep up the good work!

I Thought I would share an idea we came up with for our Melbourne cup Party with everyone. We had all residents sitting at tables, each table had to pick a name for their horse. On a table in the room where the residents could see we had a large sheet of paper drawn up with squares to represent the barriers and racetrack and we used upturned paper cups with cut out pictures of horses and their number attached. Each table had a turn at rolling a large dice, but before they could move they would have to answer a trivia question correctly. This was a lot of fun as the race was called with some very funny names. We thought this would be easier for the mobility impaired residents. It might be a useful idea for next year!

Hi I have organised our show week with Activities which include a Bar B Q that will be a Country theme staff will be encouraged to wear jeans and chequered shirts on the day we will also have Strawberry Ice Cream Cones for dessert on the day. Activities I have organised is a large clown head with the mouth cut out so the residents can try and throw the ball through the clowns mouth, also I have painted used cans and plan to use them as knock em downs on the day. With prizes awarded ofcourse maybe some home made sample bags!
