There are many types of games that seniors with physical limitations might have fun playing. Various games are also easily altered to feature a Halloween theme. Below are a few fun games live-in caregivers in The Grand Strand can play with their senior loved ones on October 31.
Candy Guessing Games
Put candy corn in a glass jar or fill a plastic pumpkin with pieces of taffy. Encourage all of the participants to guess the number of candies. The person that comes closest to the actual number wins a prize.
The game may entail identifying a spooky movie based on a plot line or horror movie actors. Questions might also revolve around famous books, poems, songs, and common Halloween traditions or myths.
Weird Wheel of Fortune
The game can be played similar to the popular game show. Using Halloween-themed words, seniors can take turns guessing consonants and vowels of the mystery word or phrase until someone correctly reveals the answer and wins a prize.
Using images associated with Halloween, seniors must find the identical pairs hidden on the board. This is a perfect game for seniors because in addition to being fun, it also serves to mentally stimulate them.
Using orange-colored beanbags or small ornamental gourds, challenge players to toss the objects into rings made from decorated hula-hoops. Determine a starting line and a point system based on the ability to hit the center of the circle.
Stop the Monster
Play the game similar to hangman. Create a colorful image of a popular Halloween monster and separate the image into pieces. Seniors can take turns guessing a designated mystery word. Every wrong guess adds a piece to the image. Participants must complete the word before the monster becomes whole.
The game mimics the TV show. Begin by choosing a list of Halloween-themes. Beneath each theme are mystery words. One or more people give one-word clues to another person in an attempt for that person to guess each word. Teams with the most correct answers win.
