I can only recall the items on a tray when you have a few minutes to look a them, then a few minutes to write as many as you can remember.

I need more to make my grumpy mother smile and join in the fun.

'Who am I'? The post- it on the forehead and only asking yes or no questions, or buy Cluedo.

Marking place to come back later - I love consequences and paper telephone smile

The one with the objects on the tray is called Kim's game.

Can't you just ply your mother with her favourite tipple and some Christmas films?

No? Well, there's charades, Chinese whispers, singing carols around the piano, checking where Santa is online, paper-scissors-stone, and if that doesn't work there's always the threat of the whoopee cushion.

We do one (it probably has an actual name but I don't know it). Needs at least 4 people (adults best) split into 2 teams, & a timer

Everybody is given 5 small bits of paper & writes the name of a well-known individual on each one (could be eg Mickey Mouse, the Pope, Rasputin, Lassie, Bruce Forsyth - anybody). Papers are folded up small & put into a pot.

Then one person from each team gets 1 minute (or 2) to take (& unfold, as fast as possible) one piece & describe the individual to teammate/s - when they guess it, take another, & so on; then one from the other team does it for their teammates; then another person from the first team, etc etc until they've all gone. (Each person is allowed one pass, if required, which goes back in the pot)

When they've all been guessed, add up the successful guesses for each team, then refold & put them all back in the pot.

Now it gets harder. Repeat, but with only a 2-word clue (so all the participants have to try to remember all the names that were on the papers)

& finally repeat again - but this time you can only mime a clue.

It gets very raucous & very frustrating grin
