The hype about grandchildren is true; one of the greatest blessings in life is grandparenting. These bundles of joy look beyond grandparents’ physique and straight into their hearts. They don’t care if you can’t buy them that latest video game or is a few pounds too much. They fling into your arms at first sight and sob when it’s time to go. You may wonder; who else in my world adores me like that? The beauty of this special bond is unconditional.
Between their school life and their parents’ busy schedules, it is not always easy to spend quality time with your grandchildren. You want to make the most out of every opportunity, creating precious moments in their childhood. Whether you are paying them a surprise visit or your grandchildren are popping in your living community, there are boundless ways to make their day. Let’s jump right into our list of awesome things to do with grandkids!
Whip Up a Meal Together
Not just another cooking session, this time, appoint your grandchild as your sous-chef! Bring them to the local market and teach them how to pick the fresh produces. Get them involved in the whole cooking process, from the preparation of the ingredients to cooking, and setting up the table. Feast on the meal concocted with love.
Go on a Live Performance Date
Kiddos love live performance experiences, their eyes sparkle as they watch the story unfold on a stage! And what’s better than with the company of their favorite person. It can be a local cultural show, a musical, or a live show with their favorite cartoon characters. If you are a resident in a living community, check out your local community for upcoming shows. Spice it up by mailing an invitation with tickets to the performance to your grandkid!
Become Their Pen Pal
Just like adults, kids get excited when there is a personal letter addressed especially to them in the mailbox. Write a letter to share your happenings and ask about their new buddy, or send a picture postcard when you travel. Your grandkid would be feeling exhilarated and this would keep your ties strong especially when they are living far away.
Explore Their Universe
From dipping their ham in strawberry marmalade to running their fingers in glittery slime, these curious munchkins get a buzz out of the wildest things. Make their day by discovering what they love to do, even if you are a tad wary of it. Who knows? You may be amused by their amazing universe as much as they do!
Invite Them for a Pyjama Party
You must have often heard your grandchild saying: “When can we come again?” Happy times pass exceptionally fast! Send an invitation to your grandchildren for a sleepover to let them have a full blast of joy! Add some cute pillows and their favorite snacks in the pantry and you are set. You can create a family tree together, read your childhood book, or have some fun with board games.
Create Festive Ornaments As a Family
Occasions like Christmas and Easter are seasons of love and sharing. You can spend quality time with your grandkid crafting Christmas ornaments or painting some Easter eggs. The goal is not perfect decoration but creates fun and amazing memories!
Have fun with your grandchildren! They grow up fast and will cherish these memories that you have created together.
