I first learned about this game when I was doing my very first RT internship. I thought it was perfect! Active enough to get people moving, but totally appropriate for their needs. Enjoy!
Everyone sits in a circle. This worked really well at that facility, because each resident was in a wheelchair. We just got chairs for the staff to sit in. Once a circle is formed, the activity leader throws a big beach ball in the middle. The patients take turns kicking the ball across the circle. It's a pretty simple activity, but helps keep their legs a little more active. Sometimes we even got a patient who kicked it out of the circle!! That always made him feel so strong!
