My grandma (80F) has been keeping herself busy crocheting and painting, but my grandpa (82M) is losing his mind being stuck inside with no sports on tv and all of his favorite indoor places closed.
I suggested grandma teach him how to crochet too, and he said that’s a woman’s hobby and would be too difficult with his arthritis. I asked if there was a hobby he would be interested in, and he said he would try a new hobby if I could find something that is indoors, manly, and won’t hurt his hands.
So, men of Reddit, what are some hobbies that are indoors, manly, and doesn’t require a lot of dexterity?
Update: Thanks for the suggestions everyone. Before I went to bed last night, I ordered him a handheld electronic poker game and some large piece puzzles for now. I’m going to get him a tablet and download some audiobooks (thanks for the book suggestions. I’m going to get Gordie Howe’s biography to start) and online games like Catan that he can do. When I get paid tomorrow, I’ll see if I can get him some model sets to do and a pair of binoculars too.
