We play crosswords daily at Parklands Manor as a way to do brain exercises but we had never tried doing it backwards until one day one of our residents suggested it.

So that is what we did. The answers to the crosswords were written on the whiteboard and residents had to come up with the clues to the answers. Whoever had the clue that was nearest to what was in the crossword book got a point.

We like to try new activities and it is even better when residents come up with suggestions.
