Mow their lawn or pull some weeds
Visit on the porch
Sidewalk chalk art to brighten their day
Make cards or simple art creations to deliver
Make or buy something tasty that they may enjoy
Make a video and send it to those who live farther away
Play a card game with them
Plan a trip to the local care center
Plan a song or musical number to perform at a care center
Call them to just chat
Make sunshine packages with bright, fun treats inside
Ask them about their lives - be an attentive listener!
Walk their dog
Walk with them around the block
This list is not comprehensive by any means! Please use your creativity while thinking of the specific seniors in your area. Enjoy the closeness this brings to your family as well as to your senior friends.
This is a great Adventure for our youngest Adventurers to start learning about empathy and helping others. It is a great way to help children start building relationships and learning to think about the needs of others.
The options are numerous. Consider your child's interests, find a senior adult that is close to the family, and let the fun begin.
