Plan some fun for your next party!

Not too long ago, I'd help out with a monthly party. The party was for people who lived in a residential home. All of the people were ether blind or visually impaired. One month, I decided to create a music quiz for everyone. The partygoers were all ages, and generally enjoyed listening to pop music from across the decades.

Make it your own!

The following quiz worked really well with around twenty people. If you have a community gathering or family event coming up, you can use this template to suit your guests. Have fun with it! You can get a nice team prize to make things interesting too - a box of chocolates such as Roses would be a great team treat!

Announce your music quiz, then reveal the prize! Encourage people to get into small teams. The team with the highest score wins the prize!

When I ran this with people who had visual impairments, we did everything verbally, and answers were given once hands were raised to give answers. However, if possible, your guests could write their answers on a team sheet of paper to hand in at the end.
