An estimated 14% of the US population is in the 65 and older age category.  And what can be expected is a steady climb in numbers in the next few decades, as the Baby Boomers move into their retirement years. Time and again, seniors are encouraged to lead physically, socially and mentally active lives. Participation in clubs and charities fosters affiliation and fulfillment while the pursuit of hobbies and educational opportunities enrich the retirement years. Now to get by with boredom, a game of chess, checkers and crossword puzzles will surely come in handy. So in celebration of Older Americans MonthFun with Printer Crafts is featuring printable crossword puzzles you can solve with your grandpa and grandma.
