Most Popular Large Print Magazines for Seniors
Looking for a magazine with large print, well you are in luck!
Reader’s Digest, Guideposts, Reminisce and AARP Magazine all come in large print as well.
I found another oldie, Good Old Days Magazine, just like Reminisce which focuses on the good old days from 1935 through 1960. All the stories are true and it’s written in a conversational style so it’s like sitting down with an old friend.
If you like birds, opt for Birds and Blooms large print. This magazine is for everyone who enjoys nature or spending time outdoors. It has information about plants, birds, butterflies, and other creatures you may find around your own home or garden. Many of the photos are submitted by readers, so it can be enjoyable to see other people’s gardens and you can even submit your own photos if you’re so inclined.
And, of course, don’t forget about BRAIN STIMULATION!! Buy those large print Word Search or Crossword Puzzle books for hours and hours of brain activity.
