Soon the leaves will be changing color and we’ll be sipping on hot cider! We love fall, and to celebrate this fun-filled season, we’d like to give you some tips on fall activities for seniors that they will love!
If you have an elderly loved one who loves arts and crafts, fall is the perfect time of year to get inspired! Try these fun activities for hours of fun!
- Coloring – get out your colored pencils and find a fall-themed adult coloring book. Coloring can be a stress-buster and help seniors feel peaceful and calm.
- Hand-crafted decorations – collect fall leaves, pinecones or Indian corn and craft a beautiful garland to hang on a door or over a mantle.
Pieces of the Puzzle!
Puzzles are one of the best memory boosting exercises anyone can do! From crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles and sudoku, you’ll give your brain a good workout! Games such as chess, checkers and cards are also a great fall pastime. So, cozy up with a cup of tea and have oodles and oodles of fun!
Watch out Martha Stewart because we’ll bet your elderly loved one has a few good cookie and cake recipes up their sleeve. Baking can also be a soothing and relaxing activity for seniors. Grab the flour, sugar and eggs for a fun-filled day of baking!
Get Out and About!
The fall season is loaded with outdoor activities. Spending a day out with your senior loved can give them a sense of excitement and childlike wonder. It’s easy to find out what’s going on in your local community just by doing a simple search online. From apple picking to pumpkin festivals, you’ll have plenty of places to go this fall!
