Another take on the music idea is to play “Name That Tune”. You can have someone, who plays the piano or guitar, play the first few notes of a song and let everyone guess the name of the song. You can have teams or just let everyone shout out the answers. Decide on a type of music such as, gospel, jazz, show tunes, 50's...etc.
This is always fun and gets everyone to reminiscing about what they were doing when the song was popular.
This is a fun game for all ages. You can choose to use titles from books, TV shows, movies...etc.
Outside Games For Seniors
There are many games that help to keep seniors active even if they have a mobility problem.
Even in a wheelchair, seniors can play a game of bowling. Purchase a child's bowling set that is made from plastic. Set the pins out on the driveway and have a contest to see who can knock the most pins down.
The same with basketball. Most seniors can still shoot the basketball throw the hoop. However, if there are physical challenges, the net can be lowered and a soft, rubber ball can be used in place of a regular basketball.
Horseshoes is a favorite yard game of many seniors. Again, you can purchase a plastic toss or light metal set to use.
Bocce is an Italian lawn game that is becoming very popular in the United States.
