Senior Activity Calendars
Month after month, find unique, senior activity ideas that will excite and fulfill your residents and that can be added easily to your monthly activity calendar. Feel free to use these activities if you need to add more activities to your upcoming senior activity calendar.
One of the easiest ways to come up with new and fresh ideas for your activity calendar each month is to relate your activities to specific observances or happenings for the month. You will find these fun observances and holidays, which can spark interesting ideas for senior activities, listed in each of the senior activity calendars.
Celebrate the harvest season with fun harvest games and activities. For example, invite residents to bake harvest cookies (Baking Club: Autumn Harvest Cookies on October 3), to tell harvest stories (Harvest Stories on October 4), or to attend a fun harvest-themed carnival (Harvest Carnival Social on October 12).
Additionally, get your residents into the Halloween spirit with fun Halloween-themed activities like watching the scary classic Frankenstein during the Frankenstein Matinee (October 29), playing Halloween Pictionary (October 29), or writing Halloween Letters to Family (October 27).
Assist your residents with giving thanks during this Thanksgiving season. Coordinate fun activities like writing letters of thanks to family members (Letters of Thanks on November 21) or creating their own Thanksgiving greeting cards (Crafts: Thanksgiving Cards on November 9).
In addition, take advantage of this holiday season by preparing tasty treats with your residents. For instance, create several Baking Club activities for your residents to create "Thanksgiving-inspired" treats, like sweet potato pie (Baking Club: Sweet Potato Pie on November 6), apple and pomegranate crisp (Baking Club: Apple & Pomegranate Crisp on November 9), or cranberry apple raisin stuffing (Baking: Club: Cranberry Apple Raisin Stuffing on November 21).
Celebrate the holiday season with fun musical entertainment. Schedule a variety of holiday musical activities for your residents like a Jingle Bells Social (December 2), a Holiday Sing Along Social (December 8), Christmas Caroling (December 20), and a O Holy Night Social (December 25).
Furthermore, take advantage of this giving season by planning volunteer opportunities for your residents. For example, set up an Angel Tree (December 2) for residents and staff to buy holiday gifts for local kids in need, host a Holiday Bake Sale (December 12) to raise money for a local charity, or schedule a Red Hat Ladies Volunteer Project (December 16) for the ladies to collect donated coats and toys for those less fortunate.
