This game is new to me


Recommended Posts

My PD came in yesterday and asked me if I had ever heard of a game "pass the hat and sin". She saw this on a sample calendar. I have not....so i was wondering if anyone out there knew of this game and could help me out.

Could it be pass the hat and sing?? If so you put names of songs in a hat and you pull one out and then sing, its used as an icebreaker but i guess it could be an activity.

I also suspect that must be "sing." You can also put quotes or jokes in the hat that the group will read together.

:huh:

 

Thank you all....pass the hat and sing sounds like a great game and much better that "sin"....we have all had misspelled words on our calendar as hard as we try not to.

Thanks! :(

Thats funny! Reminds me of the time I had a youth group come in from Christ Church to play bingo with our residents. I goofed up on the calendar and wrote "Bingo with Christ" and didn't notice it till all the calendars had been put up in each room. OOOPS! Just thought I'd share that

Your right who has not made a goof or two, however sometimes we can use these goofs to our favor. My facility is obsessed with spelling and grammar. I have dyslexia a learning disability, to bad for them.

 

A goof on the smaller things like calendars and newsletters can be turned into an Activity for the higher function client. Just today I placed instructions on the Game Room T.V. and Universal Remote at the station asking the staff "Can you find all the Boo-Boo's?" I know they will read it if not for the words Boo-Boo than just to see who can find the most mistakes. Oh my! Now they can use the T.V. when I am not there. Ha! The correct one is hanging right next to the T.V. on the cabinet not that I'd tell them that...Yet.

 

Sometimes A client helped me make the master answer sheet. The client also can hold on to the answer sheet so that they can provide the staff or other guest helpful hints or tell them when they are way off. This gives them a scene of success.

 

Retired lawyers, professors, teachers and more tare my work apart and they love doing it. The whole time they are using so many skills that are just sitting there begging to be set free. At first because I am a perfectionist I thought I would die. With and open heart I started noticing how much some of them just wanted to help. Sure there are some who just want to point out the mistakes but look what they are having to use to make it. Now I understand God did not see fit to honour me with the ability to spell with ease. Instead he graced me with others in my life who want to fix anything not in the write spot or not used in just the right way. Don't get me wrong I wish with all my heart that I could spell, and I know I will always learn because I am open to it: I also see what a mistake here or there can do for others.

 

My version of Pass the Hat and Sing. You just need to have some music (just in case someone cannot think of a song on their own) a cheap straw hat that you can throw, and a few people. I have them toss the hat around while someone sings. Where the song ends and the hat lands tells us who will go next. It really encourages the tossing especially if you do not want to be the one who gets that hat.

 

We decorated the hat during Art Cart. We had three activities in one.

 

1) Active Game 2) Music 3) Craft Three Little hats and One Big Hat

 

Note:

1)The little hats are backup singers / dancers

     Thank you for correcting the information that was released. I recently took the test for certification with NAAPCC and it was a very comprehensive and thorough test. It was not a simple easy test to get you certified. You had to know the information in order to complete and pass. I would recommend this avenue to anyone especially if finances are a struggle for MEPAP I & II. I did purchase the book for long-term care seventh edition and without that I would have struggled.

    Celeste is awesome!! Anytime i have a question she gets right back with me and she is very informative. At first I didn't know if i was going to like the new course just for the fact my MEPAP course was the own pace and I work Full time plus have 3 kids. But i am loving it! It is very structured and with due dates I feel like i am holding myself more accountable for completed assignments sooner than later. It has actually been a beneficial change for me.. Thanks so much!!!

    Good Evening I wanted to let you know that I had completed mepap 1 and had only a couple weeks left of mepap 2 so I had looked at path 2 and have taken the activities test and passed so just sending in the application. I wanted to thank you for giving all your time to us even while Kathy was ill. It didn't go unnoticed, you was a great support and helpful at ideas or even different ways of changing thoughts to positive while feeling defeated. Thank You Stacey Passa AP-BC
