We use a resident's walker (no oproblem getting one to borrow) and attached a resistance exercise band to the handles to use as a slingshot. A beanbag or small plastic ball works as the ammunition.

I tried this at Happy Hour on Friday and it was a huge hit! A couple of the men gave me tips on how to hold the stretchy band and how to aim. The whole room was laughing at my bad attempts! Several tried and got a few good shots off. I plan on making into some kind of competition like a distance thing or set up targets. I used a large Styrofoam ball. Thanks for such a fun idea!
