Celebrating Grandparent’s Day!

Are you a plan ahead kind of person or last minute kind of person?  I will admit, I am more of a last minute person myself.  However, I am more of an online shopper, and I think we all know that shipping lately has been much slower than normal.  With that being said, Grandparent’s Day is 3 weeks away.

Crafting Ideas ~

There are so many different ideas for recognizing your favorite Mimi & Pappy…ooops, I mean Grandma & Grandpa! 😉  I personally love hand-made cards and crafts.  It’s a great way for the kiddos to put some thought and love into letting their grandparents know how special they are to them.

As always, I turn to Pinterest for fun ideas.  One very simple, yet memorable craft are these coloring pages shared by Skip To My Lou.  I shared a sample below, but there are several pages to choose from.  Not only do the kids get to color, but they also answer special questions about their grandparents that make a very memorable gift for any Grandma and Grandpa.    Use this great link for free coloring pages from Skip to My Lou

Another super cute idea is to let the kids make a card with their handprints and then list 10 reasons why they love their Grandma & Grandpa like the one below shared by Learning Resources.    Materials Needed and Instructions for making your own handprint Grandparent card
