The grandparents play a unique role in our kids’ lives. From the unlimited babysitting privileges, occasional sweet treats to the kids, and the overflowing food whenever you visit, the grandparents are just there to give their support. Today, it’s time to show the old folks that we remember how special they are to us.
Let your kids spend more time with their grandparents with these fun and laidback celebration ideas.
Spend a day at home
Sometimes a simple time spent at home is more than enough for the grandparents. They enjoy watching the kids play and tell them off when the kids start climbing the couch or high stools.
Go on a weekend strolling at the mall or park
A walk in the mall or a park may be tiring for the old folks, but it is still something they enjoy with the grandkids. Make the stroll even more special with a beautiful dress.
Bake a cake together
Most kids enjoy baking. When one of the grandparents know how to whip a delicious cake, schedule a baking day with a grandparent who loves to bake.
Dance at a party
Parties bring lots of opportunities to have fun. With nice music and cute dancing shoes, my daughter just went on a groovy dance with her grandpa. Both of them were having a great time that I had to join.
Get on fun storytelling based on grandparents’ lives
Kids love a story. It’s entertaining to them. And the grandparents know how to turn old one into an entertaining story for the little ones .
Make old songs feel new with a sing-a-long
Most kids sing to any song you sing them. An old song sang by the grandparents would always be new to those little one’s ears.
Create an artwork
Just a few weeks ago, my daughter had a field trip. It was a chance to invite at least one of the grandparents to join the educational trip with my daughter. They explored the exhibit together and drew their interpretations of the planets and stars.
Grandparents Day is celebrated every year. But it doesn’t mean we can’t show our appreciation to them every chance we get.
