What are good activities for the elderly?

There are many activities elderly people enjoy, even when these activities may be harder as physical or mental decline occurs. These activities may include watching rugby or football, listening to old music, looking at old photos and more. We created the Happiness Programme with these in mind.

In time for February 14th and Valentine’s Day, we’re releasing a handful of new games, available to all our subscribers and included for free.

 3 new Valentine’s themed games

These three games are the latest in our seasonal releases, meaning there’ll be available for a number of weeks either side of Valentine’s Day.


Collect the Hearts

A game focused on counting skills and team work. Race against the clock to place as many hearts into the bag as you can.

You’ll find this game in the following playlists: all games, Competitive, Sensory, Physical Reach and Medium-Hard Challenge.


Rose Petals

This game focuses on movement, reminiscence, storytelling and sparking conversations. Brush the rose petals away and find the hidden hearts, while relaxing to gentle guitar music.

You’ll find this game in the following playlists: all games, Physical Reach, Noncompetitive and Sensory.


Valentine’s Wordsearch

Focusing on cognitive stimulation and independent play, search the grid for each new Valentine’s Day themed word.

You’ll find this game in the following playlists: all games, Competitive and Arts and Culture.


Introducing Textiles

Textiles is the latest in our Paint a Picture series and joins our growing collection of games.

Use your hands and arms to reveal patterns of textiles from around the world. Captions will appear once a picture is finished.

Developed to be used at any time of day, Textiles can be used as part of an arts and crafts activity or to give your floor or blankets a splash of colour.

How to start playing these new games

All you need to do to access these games is update your magic table 360.

Details of how to do that are found here.
