Seniors should celebrate their lives. Part of that is having a party for their birthdays. A party can remind them that they are loved and appreciated. It can also be a way to have some fun with birthday party games for seniors. This post will explore some of the top games to plan for a senior’s birthday party.
5 Fun Birthday Party Games for Seniors
Trivia games are great entertainment for birthday parties. The topics can range from movies, history, pop culture, current events, etc. Just remember to keep it light and easy. You could also try covering topics of interest for the celebrant. That will make it more fun and personal.
Name That Tune!
Name that tune is a fantastic game for bringing nostalgia to the party. To play the game, you need to prepare a playlist of short snippets of songs. You should try to pick songs familiar to the celebrant and party guests. Let the first few notes play, and whoever guesses the name of the song fastest gains a point!
Of course, we need to bring a classic to the list. All you need to prepare is a list of words or phrases written on paper and folded in half. It could be the name of a film, TV show, book, or song. Place the papers on a bowl or hat, then let the selected player of each team pick a random paper to act out. The guessing and acting out can be so much fun.
Bingo, Word Search, or Crosswords
If you want something more relaxing, there are printable games like bingo, word search, or crossword puzzles. Bingo is no doubt one of the most popular games for seniors. You’ll find plenty of bingo card templates online. Instead of a regular bingo card with numbers, it could be themed bingo, music bingo, famous people bingo, and more.
Card and Board Games
Bridge, rummy, solitaire, go fish, slapjack, crazy eights, etc., are just some of the card games you can play. You can try chess, backgammon, and checkers for board games. Card and board games are good for seniors who want something fun and relaxing.
