Celebrating spring with some fun spring activities for the elderly! After a long cold winter, the sun and warm weather are a wonderful change. To enjoy this new season, here are some activities you can use to celebrate spring with older people. These activities will surely brighten their day and help create beautiful memories together.
Get Outside and Enjoy Nature
After being indoors all winter, it will be great to enjoy some sunshine and fresh air. For older adults who are not mobile, simply sitting by the open window to have some fresh air is a way to enjoy nature. Or, they can sit outside the house to look at the flowers and trees. Other ways to enjoy nature include:
- Having a meal outside
- Walking around the park or neighborhood
- Taking a scenic drive
- Visiting a plant nursery
Decorate with a Spring Theme
It is fun to put up festive decorations for the season. There are some great DIY projects and lovely decorations that you or your family member will love. You can color spring-themed pages and hang them around the house. You can even make non-toxic colored eggs to decorate the house with or have an Easter egg hunt. Hang paper chain garlands around doorways and windows. Place wildflowers in glasses or bottles to brighten up the space. Try using removable wall decals to bring spring into the home.
Celebrate with a Family Gathering
Most older adults enjoy spending time with their family and close friends. You can have a spring or Easter potluck meal together where everyone brings a dish. Sharing food is a great way to bond the family. Make it fun by including the family members in the planning and decorating for the party.
Create an Indoor Garden
Having plants around the house will bring nature indoors. Spring is the ideal time to start an indoor garden. You can grow some little flowers or just buy some potted plants to take care of. You may want to buy some easy houseplants, beautiful peonies, or cute succulents. If you like greenery without having to maintain them, you can buy artificial ones made out of silk or plastic.
