Easter is celebrated in a variety of ways. Families rejoice with activities like Easter Egg Hunts, lavish feasts, and even crafting. Everyone loves chocolate bunnies and easter eggs, but the greatest part of the holiday is the chance to spend time with family and friends. This can be difficult for our elderly loved ones, however. This is especially true for those who are in retirement communities or have limited mobility. Here are five things you can do with your loved ones this Easter to make them feel special. Find your favorite idea below!
Make Easter Baskets Together
You might take your elderly parents shopping with you and allow them to assist you in selecting the candy for the Easter baskets. You can also inquire about what they used to put in the baskets when you were a kid, as well as what they’ve received when they were younger. When you reach home, you can collaborate on arranging the candy in the basket. When the children receive their Easter baskets, you and your aged parents can both take credit for making them happy.
Books Make Great Easter Gifts
If you have an elderly relative who is a voracious reader, it is ideal to gift him or her books to keep them occupied. Give books like “Puzzles & Trivia Challenges Specially Designed to Keep Your Brain Young”, “1,000 Unforgettable Senior Moments: Of Which We Could Only Remember 246”, and others.
Create Floral Arrangements
Make a simple floral arrangement with your loved one. It is not necessary to have a professional background! Bring some gorgeous fresh flowers, baby’s breath, greenery, and other favorite fillers, as well as a vibrant spring-colored ribbon to tie around the vases or jars. Bring the arrangements to your neighbors at home or in assisted living, or offer them as gifts to the senior living team or a home care worker when you’ve completed it.
Organize An Easter Parade
Gather the elders and invite them to join in an Easter Parade by decorating their hats or bonnets with flowers, trinkets, and other accessories. Invite their friends and family to come to see them in their Sunday best, wearing the Easter bonnets they made. It’s going to be a blast!
Craft Easter Eggs
Easter egg painting is a must-do activity for any Easter party and a personal favorite of ours. Encourage your loved ones to participate in this intergenerational activity by painting and decorating Easter eggs in a myriad of patterns and colors.
