This activity gets your residents sharing memories by tossing around a conversation-starting ball! To make your own reminiscence ball, simply write some questions on a beach ball using permanent marker. The questions can ask about your residents’ preferences like “Cats or dogs?” or ask them to share a memory like “What was your favourite subject in school?” Your residents can sit in a large circle and toss the ball to each other. Whoever catches the ball answers the question that their right thumb is touching. Give the resident time to answer the question and for the group to comment before tossing the ball to someone else.
