5 Ways to Make Grandparents' Day Special

Grandparents Day Educents Blot
National Grandparents Day is coming, tomorrow, September 13th. Are you doing anything with/for your grandparents? For me, I have zero recollection of my grandfathers. One died before I was born and the other died when I was one. I have more recollection of my grandmothers. One lived with us until she moved into a nursing home. The other we visited with frequently enough that I have good memories of her. Here are some things you can do with your grandparents (or your kid's grandparents).

1. Read a story together - Kiddos love listening to a story told by grandma and grandpa. Provide grandparents with books that are fun for the older and younger generation to read together and discuss. The Life of Fred Beginning Reader Series is a fun set of books that are hilarious, short and sweet - great for getting everyone to laugh while reading!

2. Browse through old photos - Pulling out the old family photo albums is so fun! What a great way to share memories with your children. Grandparents love telling stories and passing down their memories. Kids love pointing at photos and asking questions like, “Grandma, is that really you??”

3. Color together - Coloring is not just for kids, it’s for everyone! Send kids to grandpa’s house with a bag of coloring books so they can spend quality, artistic time together. This set of coloring books would be a great bundle to keep at grandma and grandpa’s house!

4. Make a gift for grandparents - Do your kids want to make a personal gift for grandma and grandpa? These printable books are super cute and easy to use! Just print, fill out the pages, and practice writing and reflect on memories of grandparents who are still living or passed on.

5. Interview a grandparent - Little ones can learn a lot from grandparents. What is grandma or grandpa’s favorite memories as a child? What are life lessons that can be passed down to the next generation and preserved for future generations? This one-of-a-kind interactive notebook will give your little one the opportunity to interview grandparents and have a keepsake for precious memories.
