Active senior living is all about finding the right activities to participate in. Autumn lends itself to finding fun indoors and out. Today we’re going to take a look at some great activities you can do with your family during the Fall.

autumn activities for seniors

Go for a Stroll

Fall is known for its temperate weather and the beauty of the leaves as they change. Though Maryland is known for its less-than-favorable weather, we have a true Autumn here, no matter how short it may seem. Take a stroll with your loved ones and take in the beautiful sights of the changing leaves. You might even spy a cute little critter harvesting acorns or nuts before it hibernates!

It’s Time for Crafts

Autumn wreaths and garlands are a wonderful way to ring in the holiday season. You can make them as gifts or as a family! Popular Autumn wreaths can be made from little fuzzy pom poms, fabric leaves, or wicker. Plastic flowers can also add some much needed seasonal flair to the occasion.

Visit a Pumpkin Patch

One of the best things about fall is that it is harvest time. Pumpkins and other gourds are finally in season and though Halloween has come and gone, there’s still time to dry some gourds to use for a Thanksgiving centerpiece or other seasonal decorations.

Share Some Treats

Though it may be a little early for making Christmas cookies, it’s never to early to enjoy some delicious snacks. Seasonal desserts are one of life’s greatest gifts and Autumn is perfect for all things pumpkin and apple. Create delicious snacks with your loved ones or simply make them to share!

Knit a Few Cozy Accessories

Before winter hits, you may want to take some time to make a few scarves and hats for your loved ones. This is another great activity to do in a group since knitting or crocheting can be done with plenty of conversation. Older grandchildren will appreciate these warm items especially.
