With less than 100 days until Christmas, 60 days until Halloween, I thought I’d add one more to the pile you think you’re already too late for –Grandparents Day..
Since 1978 the first Sunday after Labor Day has been officially designated as Grandparents Day. More than a reason to sell greeting cards, this annual event recognizes the strength, love and guidance grandparents provide to families. Although the recognized date is Sept. 7 this year, any day is a great opportunity to celebrate grandparents.
Children can learn so much simply by spending time talking with their grandparents and comparing their life stories. To start the process, Kiddie Academy has developed a free downloadable Family History Project that includes both a family tree and a list of questions for children to ask grandparents.
Be sure to record the interview with your favorite audio or video application so your family can revisit that new bit of family history in the future. Of course, you can also share bits via your favorite social media outlets now to friends and family, too.
However, if you’re like me, you can’t begin to do a project, much less get something in the mail to share with them! Then consider a quick click or two to send something your grands would love from Gourmet Gift Baskets. Depending on what your grandparents like, you have so many options like the Baked Goods Sampler Basket, $29.99. This basket can really satisfy a sweet tooth and it’s time to return the favor that grandma did of making those cookies growing up. Inside this beautiful basket, rich brownies (chocolate chunk and cheesecake) are artfully arranged with tempting cookies (white chocolate macadamia, oatmeal raisin, chocolate chip and peanut butter.)
Whatever you do for grandma and grandpa, make sure you tell them how much you love them. That definitely goes the furthest!
