Three activities to do with seniors this Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to gather with family and friends. Make sure to include seniors in all the fun activities! Here are just a few ideas on how to pass the time and make beautiful memories together.

Ask the seniors in your family about their favorite family recipes. Once you choose an old family recipe together, be sure to recruit your loved ones to help with the baking process. Share stories, family memories, and enjoy some holiday music while baking a delicious treat to accompany your Thanksgiving meal.

After enjoying your Thanksgiving meal with family and friends, make yourself and the seniors in your life a nice cup of hot chocolate (or the beverage of your choice)! This is a great way to unwind, and it gives your stomach some time to settle after a large, delicious meal. With mugs of warm, comforting beverages in hand, gather around the television to sit back, relax, and enjoy a holiday movie.

Once your movie ends, it’s time to break out the puzzles! You don’t need to finish the puzzle in one day, but you can try to get as much done as possible. You can make it a competition to see how many pieces everyone can fit together, or you can take your time and enjoy the process. Puzzles are a great activity to complete with the seniors in your life and are another opportunity to spend some quality time together.
