Each Halloween, you deck out the house as eerily as you can and dress your kids up in their favorite costumes before going treat-or-treating door to door. With so much fun to be had during the spooky season, you should want to get grandma and grandpa involved! You just have to make sure you pick fun things they’re able to physically participate in.
Get in the Halloween spirit and try out these senior-approved games and activities!
If your parents are still pretty active, take them trick-or-treating with the kids. They’ll love being able to spend that quality time with you and your children and will appreciate being part of the fun memories.
If your parents aren’t too keen on walking for a few hours, they might want to stay home and give treats out to the children who visit your home instead. Have a seat with them on your porch, and greet the neighborhood kids together.
This is a Halloween tradition that’s centuries old, so your parents will likely feel a bit nostalgic sitting down to carve some pumpkins with you and their grandkids. This can be especially fun if the seniors in your family have an artistic hand.
Watching Scary Movies
While some Halloween movies aren’t for the faint of heart, if your senior relatives are any fans of any classic or modern horror movies, they’ll love nothing more than curling up on the couch and popping on one of the Halloween film essentials. We suggest going with one of the more classic scary films, such as Halloween or Nightmare on Elm Street.
When it comes to keeping your senior relatives happy and healthy, you can trust the professional caregivers at Loved Ones. With our “never alone” promise, you can rest assured that your loved ones will receive the best care possible.
