Spending time together can foster strong bonds and connections among family members. This is why our Independent Living community in The Woodlands, TX, encourages residents to spend a few hours a week with their family members, particularly their teenage grandkids. If your grandkids are coming over for a visit, here are eight fun activities you can try with them in your senior apartment in The Woodlands, TX.
Complete My Song
Singing is one of the best strategies for maintaining excellent mental health. If your teenage grandkids love to sing, how about learning the lyrics of their favorite songs? Then, they can sing the first few verses of their favorite songs and get you to finish off with the choruses.
Go for an Excursion to the Museum
Who doesn’t enjoy an excursion to the museum? Both you and your grandkids will benefit from the change in routine. Spend a leisurely day at The Woodlands Children’s Museum and enjoy some quality time together as you and your grandkids view the interactive exhibits.
Ride the Woodlands Waterway Trolley
Going for a ride on the Woodlands Waterway Trolley is a fantastic choice if you and your grandkids enjoy being near water! This is a budget-friendly way to tour The Woodlands and spend quality time together. This relaxing ride is highly recommended by residents at our senior apartment in The Woodlands, TX.
Narrate a Fairy Tale
Everyone has a favorite fairy tale. Remember the times when we would read our favorite story from beginning to end even though we knew every line by heart? Consider retelling your grandkids’ favorite narrative with props! Your grandkids and you can even make budget-friendly props from scratch before your performance.
Attend a Concert
How about attending a concert with your grandkids and bonding with them over some excellent music? Located in the vicinity of our retirement community, The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion presents a wide range of performances and events. You can also check out our upcoming retirement community events and invite your grandkids to join us for our concert events.
Do Some Gardening
If you have a green thumb, use it to your advantage! The climate in The Woodlands is ideal for those interested in starting a little garden in their backyard. Your grandkids can plant whatever they like and you can help tend their seedlings.
Explore Pottery and Painting
If you want to try your hand at pottery or painting with your teenage grandkids, you’re in luck! Numerous beginner classes for pottery and painting are available in The Woodlands, TX for anyone looking to develop some creativity.
Solve Some Puzzles
Solving puzzles is an excellent pastime. It can engage your grandkids’ minds while keeping yours sharp. Working on puzzles together is a great way for you to connect with your grandkids. This is also something you can do at a nearby park while having a picnic. You and your grandkids can spend time outdoors and get some fresh air.
