How to Observe International Creativity Month with Your Senior
Many of the monthly celebrations are fairly specific with how you observe the holiday in question. Bath safety month is clear cut, for instance.

Explore Hobby Ideas with Your Senior

There are so many different options for hobbies ranging from arts and crafts to knitting, dancing, and more. Your elderly family member might even make a hobby out of exploring hobby ideas.
Find Volunteer Opportunities in the Community
Volunteering in the community might not seem like something creative at first, but it really is. First, there’s creativity involved in choosing a way to help the community and to meet a need. Your senior might volunteer with schools or with the local library or a number of other places. She’ll also meet new people, which is a way to see how other people are being creative.
