Bucket of Bean Bags Game

Loved this activity, played with my folk,although i only had four aside,if a six was rolled, i just had the person rolling the dice to choose two folk on opposite them to throw twice. Lots of fun especially when a person had to pick the extra thrower.

Dice Games for the Elderly

A local made our markers out of empty shotgun cartridges they work a treat with this game and bingo as they are easy to pick up.
i found the game mentioned above where you can't role a 1 and the first to 100 wins. I have one lady who just keeps going and last week she rolled a total of 106 in one go my folk love this game and its a great time filler.

Modified Beer Pong

love this idea i'm going to give it a go, i think i might try coffee cups taped together then put the lids on as a signal that cup is out.

How to Avoid Burnout

hi, I've just taken on the roll as activity coordinator, I think I might be trying to hard to keep the residents entertained per say, I'm trying to keep them busy for the whole 5 hours either one on one or group activities, discussions etc, but when I get home I'm worn out, then at night my mind goes a hundred miles an hour thinking of things to do.(thanks to your site I'm finding new things much easier), Is this normal?. Hopefully I can find a happy medium soon. I would love to hear from anyone that has any tips to help ,Thanks
