What plans do you have to help your elders celebrate Fall and/or Halloween?
I took my father for an early Fall/Halloween ride yesterday to see a yard elaborately decorated with a variety of ghosts, headstones and more. He enjoyed it, and we spent some time parked across the street taking mental notes.
We're probably going to make some ghosts from sticks and old sheets and put them in the outdoor plant containers. I'm not sure what to use for faces to ensure that they're waterproof. Suggestions? Fabric paint?
One of the neighbors has cut small ghosts from white fabric and pinned them to the bushes.
I'm trying to think of other ideas as well, for both seasons. I don't want any of the inflatables; they're too much upkeep as they seem to collapse daily.
What do others do? Decorate in your parents' home? Yard? At a care facility? Are there other activities you do to make this time of year special for your loved ones?
I'm interested in more thoughts, especially ones that my father can participate in creating.
Thanks for any suggestions!
