Since school is out, and we are well into the summer, you may just find the time to fit in something that makes you the grandparent even more GRAND! – a wonderful excursion or trip together. And, best of all, we aren’t suggesting long traveling, just some genuine time together and a couple of tips to consider.
This weekend we attended the most adorable baby shower for one of our daughter’s best friends. It’s amazing to have watched someone grow into such a loving responsible adult and to be able to celebrate with their love and new life.
As a grandparent, there’s a deep urge to connect with your grandkids – be a positive influence, be looked up to, love and be loved. But how do you do that when you’re not around all the time, lack deeper knowledge of their interests, and don’t want to give them senseless gifts such as gift cards?
A terrarium is such a fun and easy way to do something together with a child no matter what age. When creating a miniature garden grown inside a covered glass or plastic container, remember, this is a low maintenance project and an easy way to incorporate plants into your home.
We have one great idea here, so pay attention grandparents! No doubt you have some of those favorite family recipes that everyone asks you to create, right? Oh come on.. we know you are holding out on sharing all the ingredients, yes?
Winter always poses a considerable challenge for families with children. With the fun and bustle of the holidays long gone, the cold temps limit outdoor fun. How do you prevent cabin fever from setting in?
Do you play with your grandchildren? Do you give them the freedom to play by themselves? Hopefully you do. Please take a look at the following report from The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and make play a part of your life with your grandkids. You both will reap the benefits.
So every year we give you, Grandparents and parents alike, our exclusive ‘fun holiday days to remember’. Why? Because everyone here at GrandparentsLink.com: our staff and our founders, Leslie & Kay, believe that celebrating with your friends and family is as important as brushing your teeth! Well this year we are putting a twist on those dates and giving you the fun YUMMY dates to remember!
