Twister with a twist

I played it for the first time today. In the first round they could throw on any circle with the points as per game with 8 bean bags.

In the second game they could double their points by throwing the red bean bag on the red circle. The green bag on the green circle, the red bag on the red circle and the yellow on the yellow circle.

In the third game I taped down a chocolate in the green circle and a chocolate in the yellow circle and then gave them 3 20 cent coins to try and aim for one of the chocolates. If they got the coin on that circle with the chocolate they won it. If the coin got on any other circles I scored that as well and person with highest amount got the prize.

Residents loved the variety of the three games and were very competitive. Thank you also for the music and quiz suggestions will try that next...yeah!!!

Jingle Jangle

I still can't find the answers....do you have a link as well with all the jingles so we can play them on powerpoint? I love any resource involving powerpoint, its visual and wonderful for residents who are vision impaired. Love it to bits....

Chair Dancing

I bought two excellent DVDs from SMILE and Sway here in Australia,here are some of her examples . The residents enjoy it. She has two options on it one with the music and just follow or the other one with music and her voice.
