you can get loads of freeware games on the internet, most of them only require use of the arrow keys and are really addictive to play, i would post some websites, but everytime i try it keeps gettin f***** up

Hmmm, they should be alright. Use "automatically parse links" and just copy/paste the URLs.

Also Adhsur, I'm sorry I don't have any ideas. I'm tired, it's getting late. The helpfulness of people has regained my faith in there being friendly people on here.

Best wishes for your sister though.

I can't believe Corey. I thought he'd got nicer, but no.

I really appreciate your replies people

As for the pet idea, I think she's at least gonna get some fish to look at lol!...

Another good idea that stemmed from that is a tamagotchi - do they still get sold? An electronic pet to feed etc...

Certainly, I'm amazed at how kind hearted so many of you are

I originally thought I'd get one or two responses with some ideas and I would give them rep but the number of posts has been overwhelming.

There are loads of different kinds. There are ones that run on the computer too, such as the old Catz and Dogz series.

Real pets are better though, of course.

Try ebay you can get them for a cheap as 99p there.
The painting, pets and audio tapes sound good.

Prehaps find a local group where she could go. She'd prob need to be with you or a friend at first, but after a bit it would be fun.

And also swimming, again, not alone, but great for people with moblity difficultys.

I think this thread highlights what an amazing job the families of people with disabilities and carers do. It's hard enough to come up with an activity for one day, let alone a whole life-time

What about plaster paris models? You can get all sorts of different ones. I know its a bit kiddyish, but you get to make the models, paint them, collect them. Used to love them :cool:

If you can teach her how to make stuff it'd be cool. If she can use her hands alright, she could make friendship bracelets and stuff. You can get huge jars full of beads and stuff.
