No Plans For The Weekend?

No Plans For The Weekend?

No plans for the upcoming weekend and funds are low?  Here are some low/ no- cost ideas that people of all ages can enjoy.  With a little extra planning, you can even include your loved one that’s living in an assisted living community.

  1. Go to a local park.  This is a great time of year to explore the local scenery.
  2. Pack a picnic.  As long as you’re going to be at the park, throw a picnic basket and blanket in the car.  It doesn’t have to be extravagant - even PB & J tastes better in the great outdoors.
  3. Go for ice cream.  Who doesn’t love ice cream??
  4. Visit a farmers market.  Most markets can accommodate wheelchairs and walkers.  Take advantage of the abundance of fresh fruits, flowers, and vegetables.
  5. Go to the library.  With thousands of books, movies, magazines, etc. you can spend an entire day just browsing.  While you’re there, borrow a few movies and have a movie marathon for the whole family.
  6. Write a letter to your grandchild.  Include pictures of their parents so they can see what they looked like when they were young.  Kids love to receive snail mail!
  7. Rainy day?  Clean out those closets and cupboards and donate items to a local shelter.
  8. Take a nap.  I mean a real nap - not dozing on the couch or in a chair.  Get in the bed and pull up the covers!  You’ll wake up refreshed and energized.
  9. Attend a community play or festival.  The possibilities are endless and again, most are wheelchair or walker accessible.
  10. Take a ride to look at the changing leaves.  Pack the whole family in the car and enjoy your corner of this beautiful country.
