Every Day is Grandparents’ Day! Is full of creative ideas, activities, and games that will make it easy for your grandchildren to put away their cell phones or tablets and hang out with the old grandparents. All the activities are fun and easy to do. Most need minimal supplies that are usually found in any household.
Every Day is Grandparents’ Day! is organized by topic so you can hone in on which areas might be the most fun for you and your family. Although, you won’t want to miss out on learning something new from the other topics. Included topics are: In Motion, Musical, Crafty, Family, Kitchen Capers, Games, Hodgepodge, Into the Wild, Rainy Day, Places, and Science. Activities include Alphabet Anagrams, Park-a-Thon, From Here to There, Sing-a-Song, and Take Flight to name a few.
Interspersed between each topic are bits of information about the status of grandparents and the part they play in the lives of their grandchildren and children.
The end of the book contains all you need to know about Grandparents Day and how it came to be. It even includes a handy chart of upcoming dates for the special day.
