Easter traditions are significant not only for children but also for aging adults. It is a special holiday for most but how we celebrate it may differ for each person. Easter activities and crafts for seniors can go beyond just creating chocolate bunnies and plastic eggs. You can celebrate Easter not only at home but also at your retirement community. Here are some ways you can enjoy Easter activities at senior living communities!
Decorate Easter Eggs
If you have dyed and decorated Easter eggs every year, why not continue the tradition this year? You can switch up the tradition by coloring on your eggs or using plastic eggs and decorating them with glitter glue or stickers before filling them with sweets. After dyeing all of the eggs, you can donate them to a preschool or community organization for an Easter egg hunt for the kids!
Host an Easter Show
If you want to do something fun, you can host an Easter show where you can plan performances with the residents in your retirement community! Whether it is listening to piano music, hearing old Easter tunes, or leading an Easter sing-along, you can enjoy or participate in the performances while socializing with your friends!
Host a Unique Easter Hunt
If you’re ready to embark on a more exciting activity, you can host a one-of-a-kind Easter egg hunt for the residents in your retirement community! Unlike the usual egg hunt, they must find specific objects rather than fake eggs to fill their Easter baskets. You can hide chocolate bunnies or candy egg packs around your retirement community. To start the hunt, you should give each person a list of items that they should gather and let them embark on their Easter egg hunt!
Craft Easter Cards
Just like any other festive season, crafting Easter cards can be a great way for you to express your gratitude and love for the people you truly care about. You can get craft supplies from your retirement community and create a specially designed Easter card for your family or relatives. If cards are too typical for you, why not try other crafting ideas that you can do for your loved ones? Gift crafts such as crotcheting blankets or sweaters can also be a great Easter gift.
Create an Easter Cross as a Door Hanger
An Easter cross door hanger is a simple Easter craft activity that honors the religious significance of the festive season. All you need are raffia strings or dried twigs, ribbons, twines, and scissors to make it. You can also opt to use Easter-themed pipe cleaners or long artificial green stems to give it a more natural look.
