Guess The Proverbs

Here is another Dementia Cafe picture quiz. Ask members to look at the pictures and guess at the proverbs they are portraying. If they get stuck on any of them give the first part of the proverbs, which are written below. Then discuss what each saying means.

PS If I've missed any obvious ones let me know in comments and I'll add them.

Curiosity killed the CAT

The early bird catches the WORM

A dog is a man's best FRIEND

While the cat's away the mice will PLAY

Counting sheep to go to SLEEP

Birds of a feather flock TOGETHER

Pigs might FLY

You can't teach an old dog NEW TRICKS

A bird in the hand is worth two in THE BUSH

Don't bite the hand that FEEDS YOU

An apple a day keeps the doctor AWAY

A leopard can't change it's SPOTS

A stitch in time saves NINE

The grass is always greener on the other SIDE

All that glitters is not GOLD

You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it DRINK

Like a bull in a china SHOP

Kill two birds with one STONE

Like a fish out of WATER

Wolf in sheep's CLOTHING

Let the cat out of the BAG

Hear no evil, see no evil, SPEAK NO EVIL

Rome wasn't built in a DAY

Raining cats and DOGS

The pen is mightier than the SWORD

Better safe than SORRY

Don't cry over spilt MILK

Too many cooks spoil the BROTH

Many hands make light WORK

Like the cat that got the CREAM

Laughter is the best MEDICINE
