Creative ideas for a joyous season

The holiday season is a time to celebrate and enjoy the company of our loved ones. For many families, this includes spending time with our senior members. Whether it’s a grandparent, older aunt or uncle, or even a great-grandparent, seniors can add a special element to the holiday season. Here are some fun activities and creative ideas for a joyous season for you and your family.

1. Bake holiday treats together: Baking is a great way to bond with your seniors and create lasting memories. Find a few holiday recipes, such as sugar cookies, gingerbread, or hot chocolate, and make them together. Ask your seniors to share any stories or recipes that have been handed down to their families.

2. Play festive games: Get the family together for a game night and play some festive-themed games. This can include board games like Scrabble or Monopoly, as well as card games like Go Fish or Rummy. Bonus points if you get a game that’s specifically designed for seniors.

3. Take a drive to look at holiday lights: Get in the car and take a drive to look at the holiday lights. This activity is especially enjoyable for seniors who may not be able to walk around to look at decorations. Bring along some hot chocolate or cider and enjoy the lights together.

4. Enjoy some holiday music: Nothing gets people in the holiday spirit like classic holiday music. Put on a holiday playlist and have everyone sing along. Ask your seniors to share stories about their favorite holiday songs or memories associated with the songs.

5. Visit a holiday market: Visiting a holiday market or fair can be a fun and festive way to spend time with your seniors. Enjoy browsing the vendors’ stands and pick up some holiday gifts. Make sure to take some time to enjoy some of the holiday treats, such as roasted chestnuts or hot apple cider.

These are just a few of the many fun activities you can enjoy with your seniors this holiday season. Whatever you do, make sure it’s something that will make lasting memories and bring you all closer together.
