With Easter coming, you might think that it’s hard to celebrate it if you’re residing in a retirement community. Fret not, here are six activities you can do while celebrating Easter in your independent living community!
Capture Every Moment
Just like any occasion, photographing everything to keep as a memory is something we all do. At your independent living communities, you can document and capture every unforgettable event or activity throughout Easter. You may then share the photographs or videos with your family through the internet or you can opt to mail them to them! These photos will mean a lot to them as they can see how well you’re doing. There are pocket photo printers that allow you to print images from your smartphone instantaneously for extra convenience.
Take a Drive
If you prefer driving over taking a walk, you can take a drive on Easter to enjoy the outdoors. If you reside in a busy city, this will be your opportunity to view the city without the crowds. Why not visit the countryside if the city isn’t interesting enough for you? If you’re looking for road trip inspiration, you can search online for suggestions for road trip ideas in every state. Choose one that resonates with you, pack a picnic basket, and prepare your playlist and you’re ready to go!
Gardening is a surprisingly pleasant and gratifying activity for those who haven’t tried it yet. It’s beneficial to your mental health and is practical at times of loneliness. You can grow your food and manage a lovely garden, which can serve as your own personal oasis.
If you’re planning to garden this Easter, you should begin gathering supplies right now as there are many people who are also interested.
Try New Recipes
With Easter just around the corner, it’s more important than ever to cook at home and enjoy your free time experimenting with new recipes. You can start practicing new recipes now, and by Easter, you should be able to serve your guests a genuinely delicious meal.
Watch Easter Movies
After all, Easter is a time for family, and Easter movies are a great way for you and your family to spend some quality time together. There are a variety of movie alternatives available, including Passover films with a more mature tone.
Make an Easter movie night an event to make the occasion even more memorable. Make your house look like a movie theater, complete with an usher, movie tickets, and a concession stand.
You can still decorate eggs at your retirement community but just let your grandchildren or family members dye them. To make it memorable, you can set up a video camera to catch everyone decorating the eggs from beginning to end. You can provide them with art and crafts materials such as tie-dye or herbs. Once the eggs are done, you can share the footage with your family and friends.
