Today is National Senior Citizens Day!

Today, August 21st is National Senior Citizens Day. As a premier Bangor child care center, our team at Watch Me Shine would like to take this opportunity to recognize, appreciate, and help you incorporate this day into the lives of our littlest family members.


As leaders in-home and community services, our primary goal is to help students and families find solutions to help them succeed. It all starts at home. Our mission is to provide all family members with ways to interact that foster long-term, loving relationships. So, being National Senior Citizens Day, we’d like to present a few ways to enhance relationships between the youngest and oldest generations of your family.




Instrumental to learning, playing is an excellent way to engage children while sparking the inner-child in older generations. However, playing is not only a learning tool but also a way to enrich relationships. Finding common ground to interact, engage, and laugh together will create lasting memories for all to cherish.

Consider the following activities which are intergenerational and engaging to all ages:

  • Go Fish!
  • Blow bubbles
  • Puzzles and Board games such as Candy Land and Connect Four
  • Read stories
  • Plant seeds
  • Build with blocks or legos
  • Color or paint



Be social!

Social engagement between generations provides unique opportunities that may otherwise be missed. An emotional experience for all sides, intergenerational activity offers both mental and physical benefits.


For the young:

  • Learning values and respect
  • Teamworking skills
  • A broader insight into life experiences
  • Creating memories
  • Boost self-confidence
  • An opportunity to connect to family and develop friendships

For the seniors:

  • Finding the inner-child and feeling invigorated
  • Increased mental and physical activity
  • Feeling less lonely or isolated
  • Rediscovering joy

With the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it’s important to slow down and remember the importance of generations. Each age brings unique stories and experiences that others will appreciate. Bringing smiles, creating memories, and having good old fashioned fun is a must for all.
