Match The Sayings Set 2. 30 more well known sayings to muse and match. Includes easily recognisable favourites such as: Every cloud/has a silver lining and many more. Large, chunky tactile pieces that are fully washable. Great reminiscence game for older care home residents or for anyone with a sight impairment.

Activity Ideas:

  • Lay the tiles face down and play like a game of 'Pairs' - players select two at random - if they match then have another go, if not replace (but try to remember where they were).
  • Keep the tiles in the bag and pull one out at a time. Say the part-sentence and see if others can finish it. This may be the end or the beginning.
  • Extend the activity by selecting a phrase and seeing how many different words players can make from it.

Bean Bags (single)


These 13cm x 11cm colourful Bean Bags are a really versatile throwing game activity for elderly people - great for those who find it difficult to catch a conventional ball. Brightly coloured with good contrast to help anyone with sight impairment to easily distinguish the different colours. Easy to catch as they have a slower action through the air than a ball and they won't bounce away. Good for improving grip and toning the upper body.
