Yet another success oriented dementia game is dice rolling.

You can make the dice with easily handled cardboard boxes or use large foam or stuffed dice.

Higher functioning dementia residents can wrap boxes in white paper.
and place circle stickers to make the dice look like regular dice or silly dice.

After the dice ar made or purchased, you are ready to play the game.

You can just have dementia folks take turns rolling the dice. After everyone has had a turn, the highest number in the wins.

This is a no fail activity. Everyone
can throw dice, even if you must assist with the throw. Much cheering
and congrats accompanies this and it becomes a lot of fun
