Grandparents are the greatest aren’t they? National Grandparents Day is September 7th. Grandparents conjure up memories of old fashioned fun, sweet treats, words of wisdom and valuable life lessons. There are so many reasons we love grandparents.
Show some appreciation for Nana and Papa (or Grammy and Gramps) this year with some cute kid-made gifts.
We’ve rounded up some great gifts grandparents will love for Grandparents Day this year and kids will love making. These homemade gifts are great ideas for birthdays and holidays too, so be sure to save this page for later!
Another great gift for a baker, especially one that loves having helping hands in the kitchen.
Another fun way to celebrate is to use the FREE downloadable Family History project (available here:http://bit.ly/KAfamilytree) that includes both a family tree and a list of questions for children to ask grandparents.
“Children love knowing that they’re part of something bigger than themselves. Family history projects also help children to understand that they are in fact characters in a larger story that began before they were even born,” says Kiddie Academy’s Vice President of Education Richard Peterson. “Hearing about how grandma lived in a very different type of house, or how grandpa also had a pet dog can create connections through the generations that are both powerful and heartwarming.”
