As the temperatures rise, summer means it’s time for some fun! Not everyone is ready to soak up the sun, however, but there’s no reason for anyone to miss out on summer joy. Seniors may find themselves a little more sensitive to the extended daylight and mounting heat. They can join in the summertime fun with these awesome indoor activities!
Indoor Activities: Cultural Outings
Who doesn’t love exploring their city’s cultural offerings? Seniors can enjoy a fun day checking out local museums, art galleries, and aquariums, all with the comfort of chilly AC and shade. Many places offer special discounts for senior citizens, too! Search for something they might like, then make it even more special by joining them.
Host a Movie Marathon
A great way to beat the summer heat is to gather some friends and family and enjoy some summer blockbusters from years past. It’s as simple as finding out what type of movies they enjoy. Do they like romances? Epic science fiction thrillers? How about action-packed adventures? Gather the family together, make some popcorn and popsicles, and everyone can enjoy some cool summer fun. As far as indoor activities go, it doesn’t get much easier than this!
Indoor Activities: Board Games
Some indoor activities can be enjoyed with grandchildren, and this is one of them. Everyone loves to play games and there are more choices now than ever. Kids can enjoy time with their grandparents with a fun tournament of games. Add in some snacks and refreshing drinks, and you’ll have a great batch of indoor activities for your seniors.
Learn a New Hobby
It’s never too late to learn something new, and one of the best indoor activities is to take up a new hobby. Learning new skills is not only fun, it also helps keep your brain sharp. Hobbies best suited for the indoors are things like painting, indoor gardening, baking, model building, and reading. There’s an endless amount of new things to try, so talk to your seniors and see what might interest them. From there, it’s a simple internet search to get some ideas on how to start their new hobby.
