Grandparents Day Activities

Did you know that September 10th is Grandparents’ Day?  Grandparents are special people and I would love to help you spoil rotten all the Grandparents out there!  Today I bring you some fun Grandparents Day Activities and ideas.  Of course, sometimes not all children have a grandma/grandpa.  If this is the case, why not find a “Grand-friend”.  Each year at our school, Grandparents are invited to school for a special day of activities.  If the children do not have a grandparent who is able to come, the children can bring a grand-friend.  If nothing else, Grandparents usually don’t mind “adopting an extra student for the day…Grandparents are good like that.

Okay, let’s first start out with a book.  Here are a few of our favorites.  All of these books make me smile …(my children LOVE them all).

    1. Hi there, It looks like you are trying to get our free download. To get your freebie you enter your email into the light blue box on the page. I WILL DO THAT FOR YOU NOW. Then…. check your spam folder…sometimes things go there. The freebie has a subject of “Here is your free download!” …Inside that email there is a link. That link, if you click on it, the download will either popup in a new tab or download into your download folder. Sometimes that link does not come hyperlinked. If that happens you have to copy/paste the link into a new browser tab and it will then open for you. If you have trouble with this, though, send me an email ([email protected]) and I will help you!
