Spring Activities for Seniors

Do you have a case of spring fever? As the weather gets warmer and the outdoors gets more inviting, it’s a great time to use that energy and try something new. One of these spring activities for seniors might become your favorite new hobby.

Spring Activities for Seniors

Did you know spring fever isn’t just an old wives’ tale? Believe it or not, there is a correlation between the change in seasons, higher energy levels, and an overall better mood. That makes spring a great time to try something new. If you’re looking for a way to get out and enjoy the season, we’ve got you covered with these spring activities for seniors.

Check Out a Local Springtime Event

If you’re lucky enough to live in a city with a bustling social calendar, you’ll have your pick of fun spring festivals and celebrations to keep yourself busy. For example, residents of Greenville can spend their weekends taking in the best of local music and art at various events throughout the season. A local festival can be a great way to experience your town in a whole new way. Try going earlier in the day to beat the crowds and the sun.

Get Back to Nature

If a busy downtown isn’t your idea of a good time, spring can also provide plenty of opportunities to enjoy some peace in nature. If you’re a hiker, take advantage of the nice weather and treat yourself to a walk through a local park. If you love animals, putting out a window birdfeeder is a great way to invite the birds back to your yard after the winter. You can even open the window to enjoy the fresh air and sights and sounds of the season.

Freshen Up Your Space

Speaking of fresh air, there’s no better way to welcome the new season than a bit of spring cleaning. Clear out the clutter and dust from the winter by tidying up and tackling those cleaning jobs you’ve been putting off, then celebrate with some spring redecoration. Fresh flowers and pastels can give your space a whole new aesthetic for the season. Decorate with some of your favorite spring arts and crafts for a personal feel!

Plan a Picnic

Spring is a great time to reconnect with friends and family you may not have seen as much during winter. Why not plan a picnic or another outdoor event for them to enjoy? Keep an eye on the weather and find a weekend where it will be sunny and warm, and see who’s up for a trip to your favorite local park. Invite everyone to bring their favorite foods and outdoor activities and prepare for an afternoon of sunshine and fun. Picnics are also a great way to celebrate events commonly happening in spring, like school graduations.

Grow Something

Spring is when trees and plants bloom, and it’s also a great time to cultivate your green thumb. If you have available outdoor space, there are many ways to make an outdoor garden that is beautiful and accessible for seniors. If indoor gardening is more your speed, there’s no better season to start an indoor herb garden or terrarium.
