One of the most tragic mistakes we can make as seniors is thinking that we’re “too old” to start holiday traditions with our grandchildren! No matter what your level of mobility, Easter is a time for celebration! You have THE most essential gift to give this holiday season…the gift of time. Make the most of it with your grandchildren, whether toddlers or teenagers, and enjoy some of these memorable Easter activities.
Help your grandchild plant a quick-growing seed in a small terra cotta pot now, and you just might have some sprouts by Easter! Together, tend it and keep watch as it grows and blooms. This season is a celebration of all things living and serves as a beautiful opportunity to discuss how many things come to life in the spring. Plus, there is something magical that you will see on your grandchild’s face when she sees that first little sprout appear!
Make your own gourmet chocolate Easter eggs! Check out this recipe that is soooo much better than the foiled-wrapped ones in the grocery store, and easy to make, with only four ingredients. Wrap these up in a beautiful little basket and deliver together to all your friends! I mean, why waste an opportunity to show off your grandchildren?!

Finally, remember you don’t have to get out and about to celebrate Easter with your grandchildren! Invest in some window clings and plastic eggs from the dollar store, let some fresh air in, and enjoy a good old-fashioned easter egg hunt in your place! The time you spend in laughter together will be a worthwhile investment, as you simply savor life together!
We wish you and a blessed Easter season! Please have your family join us for any of the many activities Parkview has scheduled this spring!
