Enjoyable Senior Activities To Enjoy In Autumn

Updated on October 26, 2015

Why Elders Rise For Fall

With the weather beginning to cool and the leaves dropping from the trees in different shades of brown and crimson, it's no doubt that autumn is in the air. But as the weather changes and activities become more confined to the comfort of the home, did you know there are still plenty of activities that you can enjoy both inside-- and outside-- the home?

This doesn't just include things to do for younger generations, either-- in fact, seniors from all walks of life have a plethora of fun and exciting fall activities that await them, no matter where they live in the U.S. today.

Take a look below at some enjoyable elder activities that will get you rising high for the fun of fall.

1. Apple Picking

What's a great way to get some relaxing exercise, enjoy all the fall colors, and have a delicious bite to eat? The answer: going apple picking!

Apple picking doesn't have to be too strenuous, and allows ample opportunity for fun with family and endless chatter as you walk through beautiful nature trying to spot delicious ripe apples that are within arm's reach. There are plenty of orchards and other apple tree areas in many sections of the U.S., as apples are one of the primary fruits that fall is best known for producing.

You may also enjoy checking out a nearby pumpkin patch to find the perfect pumpkin for a ghoulish Halloween jack-o-lantern, in case apple picking is too strenuous or doesn't quite fit your fall fancy.

2. Decorate Your Home

With the trio of holidays just around the corner-- Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas-- now's as good a time as any to get festive with your home!

Carve a pumpkin. Set up a Santa sleigh in the front yard. Put a scarecrow out near the front door for all passersby to acknowledge and admire. Be as creative as you'd like-- the choice is yours.

Whatever you decide to do to get festive during these autumn months will be both fun and good for you, as being creative improves cognition ability in people of all ages (and particularly among elders)!

3. Experience A Festival

The season has officially fallen into fall-- but where's all the fun?

The truth of the matter is, elders of all ages can enjoy fall festivals that are assuredly happening in their area, no matter where they happen to live. These events are often filled with live music, delicious and wholesome local foods, fun arts and crafts, friendly and outgoing vendor booths, and a better understanding of what fall is supposed to be all about!

A fall festival can be a fun and interactive experience for the whole family, too, allowing elders and their grandchildren alike to enjoy a wholesome experience that's worth it all the time, every time-- but only for a limited time! So make sure to bundle up in warm clothing before you break the ice with the rest of the family-- and invite them to come out to the fall festival that's happening in your area today.
