One of the greatest joys in life is becoming a grandparent. Spending time with little ones and watching them grow is an incredible gift. And the best way to celebrate Grandparents Day (or any day for that matter!) is spending quality time with the grandkids. Here are a few fun ways to make some memories…
- Reap what you sow. Many Dirigo residents in our cottage community enjoy large flower and vegetable gardens in their yards, and our Inn residents have the opportunity to claim a spot in our raised beds. Kids loves seeing what’s growing in the garden and now’s the perfect time to let them help pick a peck or two!
- Share a family recipe. Now that you’ve harvested all those tomatoes, teach the grandkids how to make your family’s famous tomato sauce! Old family recipes for cookies, pies, and special meals are always the best and full of memories. Share them with the next generation.
- Craft something together. If you’re a quilter or a knitter or tie flies, share your talents with your grandchildren. Not very crafty? There are tons of fun craft ideas online for every age, and creating something together is a great way to bond with little ones.
- Brain work. Kids love puzzles — whether they’re jigsaw, word searches or just a fun riddle. Get out some board games or watch a game of Wheel of Fortune together — solving clues together is a fun way to spend time.
