Inexpensive Mother’s Day Activities for Seniors
Mother’s Day is a great day to show your love and gratitude for the woman who raised you and loves you unconditionally. However, if you are someone who is on a budget — here are some inexpensive ideas to celebrate Mother’s Day with your senior mom.
Go for a picnic with the family
Get some fresh air and go for a picnic with your senior mom on Mother’s Day. Spending time with nature has many benefits for our senior loved ones. Find a good picnic spot in your area where you can enjoy nature together. Play some games, bring their favorite food, lay a blanket or set up a tent on the ground and bring a water bottle or tumbler to make sure that everyone is hydrated.
Do arts and crafts at home
One of the best ways to stimulate senior’s mental health is by doing art and crafts. Enjoy your senior mom’s company and do some activities at home such as making a memory shadow box or photo album, knitting, sewing, Bible journaling, painting, drawing, etc.
Cook or bake together
Learn some new recipes, go for a grocery shopping and cook or bake together at home. To make your bonding more meaningful, wear a matching apron with your senior mom and capture the moment. This activity is therapeutic and a great way to reduce stress.
Throw a simple party at home
Gather your family in your home and throw a simple dinner or a party for your senior mom. Decorate your home with “Mother’s Day” themed decor and make her feel special by giving her gifts such as silver jewelry, apparel, a mug with her favorite coffee or tea.
Celebrating Mother’s Day with your senior mom doesn’t have to be expensive at all, but spending quality time with them will mean a lot.
