In the evolutionary development of man from childhood to old age directly influencing factors may vary from education. In this sense, the proposed intervention and action around improving the quality of life and learning from our elders have motivation from and the proper use of creative ability. An attitude and mindset that can motivate, learn and model from educational programs. With it, the human being is capable of producing new ideas and think differently to others, transmitting, at this advanced age, a new way of life.

Old people who have, by their physical or mental condition, limited skills or abilities, they are still creative. A child is born with the ability to create and develop this potential to do more, which is why it is necessary to encourage the creative process looking for a balance between learning and evolutionary development.

Society is experiencing an aging process that will continue in the coming years, reaching 22% of total global population in 2050. For this reason, from different countries it is insisted on building proposals and activities to promote active aging, independent and healthy, to prevent deterioration. In this paper we intend to reflect on this issue and provide simple and interesting initiatives for seniors.
