The game includes a set of 48 cue cards each with an expression missing one word along with the answer cards. The cards are grouped by type of expression - either two words with the third missing ("Hip, hip, _ _ _ _ _ _") or an expression missing a word ("Don't sit under the _ _ _ _ _ tree"). Each group of expressions is further divided into sets so that the smaller sets can be used with individuals while the larger sets (or complete pack) can be used for group activities. Combining the cards with our "Expressions Bingo" addon provides even more options for group activities.

Package Includes: 48 Expressions Cue Cards, 48 answer cards and complete instructions in a compact, easy to store case.

Suitable For: A great activity for almost almost anyone with dementia or Alzheimer's.

My mother with dementia loves this game and it helps keep her mind occupied with positive thoughts. The caregivers rave about the game and some of the younger ones are learning these wise sayings for the first time. LOL (Posted on 9/18/2017)

We've only tried it once, but he did very well just answering the questions. Seemed to enjoy it and he talked about how his mom said those things... she's been gone almost 30 years, but he doesn't remember.... but we could talk about her and it was sweet. (Posted on 8/26/2017)
She lives in a nursing home and her memory is getting worse. The sayings or expressions are still all familiar ...Review by Wendy D.

My mother really likes this game. She lives in a nursing home and her memory is getting worse. The sayings or expressions are still all familiar to her and she easily can guess the blank word. This makes her feel good and when filling in the blank word gets too easy then I use the answer words as a kind of charade game. She likes this too. (Posted on 5/15/2017)

Great game for seniors with dementia - easy to play with a small groupReview by A.C.

I bought these a year ago for my grandma, who has dementia. I love busting these out when we need some positive energy, and she is so good at it. Often times, other people in her memory care facility will play with us, too. I highly recommend it - it is fun for the whole family and can redirect from sad to happy, if needed.

My mother is in the late middle stage of Alzheimer's and is quite successful with this game. It gives her a sense of accomplishment. It's great for someone who can no longer read and write. (Posted on 10/25/2016)

Much better than books of expressionsReview by Gwynn

We have books of expressions, but we never use them. These cards are terrific. You can hand them to the person to read, or read them out loud yourself. They're well made and laminated so that they don't get damaged and you can wipe them clean. Great product. (Posted on 5/4/2015)
