Sing-Along with Picture Cards

It is good to use a variety of picture quizes to create reminise as well as hints to encourage a sing along and conversation. Residents need variety and pictures help to visualise that's why we use the 5 senses.

Sing-Along with Picture Cards


Newactivity

Picture quiz

Try a picture quiz with a variety of flowers.
What do all these flowers symbolise?
Example, on tha page have at least ten flowers .
A picture of a rose, and a song to match this is "Paper Roses.
Picture of Eldeweiss, film, sound of music sung by Christopher plummer. Great for creating reminisce.
Activity coordinators will pick up on this activity.

Spot the Differences Contest

I agree with Fiona, the cartoon effect are not for my clients. Musical instruments, famous places or fruit and veg are just some more suggestions for future sketches.

Sing-Along with Picture Cards

New activity.
A song with a girls name in the lyrics, for example, Daisy Daisy, Lili Marlene, Oh Suzannah, Sandra de, Oh Carol, Molly my Irish Molly, there are plenty of songs with the name Rose. The list is endless and makes for a great mind stimulation activity and a sing along.
This activity can also be used in categories, girls names, boys names, colours, flowers, cities or countries and more, use your imagination. You be amazed with the number of songs and use prompts if needed, also use a flip chart.
Hope this activity helps other activity co ordinators.

Hi Tracey, older people love musicals. Put famous musical stars, e.g Doris Day, Gene Kelly,Bing Crosby and many more and use for a picture quiz. Ask to put a name to the face. Also have some trivia of these stars so you can reminisce.
Hope this helps
