Good evening,

Well all I can say is thank you so much for all your input, it really does make things easier during these somewhat "difficult times".

One game I would like to share with you is Balloon Badminton all your need is a balloon and two rackets, I have a resident who is 97 and she loves this and gets very competitive. It is brilliant for hand eye coordination and gets the heart going.

We have had a lot of fun with this, as I hope you all will.

Also a great favourite is floor dominoes - does anyone know where I can get some big floor games from i.e. snakes and ladders etc

My residents love daily quizzes so any suggestions would be gratefully received, quick fire questions go down well.
