Tossing a bean bag is a great way for older adults to get some light exercise. Bean bag baseball turns a simple activity into a purposeful sport using a board like the one below. Check your local sports stores or see if someone in your community can build one for you!
To play the game, form teams with your residents. The “batter” has three chances to throw their bean bag into one of the holes on the board. The hole the bean bag lands in will tell them whether they’ve hit a foul or made it to a base. You can set up chairs to represent the bases or keep track of everyone’s positions on a whiteboard. Teams score points when they make it back to home base. Get the full list of rules here.
