Grandparents Week

Grandparents Week

The bond between a grandparent and a grandchild is unlike any other. Grandparents are among children’s first role models, first teachers, and first best friends. In honor of Grandparents Week on October 11 - 15, we’re highlighting ways families can celebrate the special grandparents in their lives by cherishing warm memories and creating new ones. Whether in person, distanced, or connecting over video chat, here are 8 ways grand kids can celebrate their grandparents during Grandparents Week this year.


Quality Time: Finding ways to check-in and celebrate loved ones is essential this Grandparents Week! Here are a few ideas to connect with loved ones:

1.Virtual Visit: Level up a typical video chat with a virtual activity to celebrate this special day. Ask your grandparent to read their favorite story over video chat or play this printable game for grandparents and grand kids while you catch up.

2. Distanced Drop-In: Take a wagon ride to grandma and grandpa’s front porch for a distanced visit and deliver a handwritten card to make them smile during their special week.

3. Together Time: Enjoy the last of summer days by inviting the grandparents over for an afternoon of outdoor games. This is the perfect time for grandparents to teach their grandchild their favorite hobby or skill too!
