Activities to try at home Take a look at some of these activities to intrigue, spark interest, conversations and have fun. Entertainment A visit to Youtube brings you to a world where you can search for videos on everything from old TV shows, interviews, crafting demonstrations, how to guides and more! Are you a fan of Countdown? Take part in your own game online. Explore the world and test your knowledge of landmarks in these online map games. If sudoku is your passion, why not play online and choose how hard your game is? Or you can't beat the fun of a good old personal challenge against Pacman! We also have our own Neuro Therapy Centre activity book available which has colouring, puzzles and more. Phoebe also wrote about online TV options and podcasts on our blog. Have a blast from the past and take a look through the BBC archives by decade or theme on their dedicated BBC Reminiscence Archive. To begin, simply select a Theme (such as Sport, Events etc.) or a Decade (1930s, 1940s etc.) and choose whether you wish to have Image, Audio or Video content. The results are randomised each visit, however items can be 'favourited' to return to later. If you're feeling like a spot of cookery - why not try one of the tasty recipes sent in by our staff team?
