Making Education Fun
Learning something new is always a good thing, but it isn’t always a fun thing.
Admit it, sometimes you would dread going back to school and facing pop quizzes, mean teachers, and hours of homework. Are we right? While your senior may not be heading back to school, they may be resistant to learning new things for the same reason.
At Miller Home Care, we believe that there are always ways to make activities more enjoyable for your aging loved ones! Check out these fun educational tricks!
Make it a game – memory games and word games are a great way to help educate your aging loved ones while still ensuring they have fun! Try a word scramble or word search!
Make it a song – putting a musical tune behind a lesson not only makes it easier to remember, but more enjoyable as well! Try singing facts instead of just reading them next time!
Make it a competition – if your loved one has a competitive side, turn educational activities into a prize. Whoever solves the problem first wins an extra treat!
Learning doesn’t have to be work! Make it fun!
