With warmer weather upon us, it’s about that time for all of us to venture outdoors once again and enjoy spring! Spring is a great time for seniors especially to participate in hobbies or activities. Hobbies aren’t just fun – they are important activities for senior citizens. Fun activities are great for our physical and emotional health at any age, but if your loved one has spent a lot of time in front of TV this winter, now’s the time to take up a hobby!
Gardening is a hobby many senior citizens enjoy, and it can be simple and easy! Give your loved one some flower seeds, potting soil and a pretty pot for Easter or Mother’s Day. All they have to do is plant the seeds, water it and give it sun. The growth and beauty of your mom or dad’s new plant can be a fun topic of conversation.
Spring cleaning is also a great spring activity for older loved ones. Help them put away winter clothes and get out spring and summer ones, or get some attractive or fun containers so they can sort out their junk drawers.
With the warm weather, spring hobbies for seniors can be as simple as watching grandchildren or pets play outside or hanging laundry on an outdoor clothesline. The key is to spend time together and enjoy the season!
