Grandparent's Day Gift Ideas

by: Deborah Shelton

Grandparent's Day is September 8. Celebrate with these fun and thoughtful ideas!

* Painting Pictures. First, find a favorite family photo that evokes fond memories. Recreate the picture scene by drawing or painting it on a sheet of paper. When you're finished, display the original photo and your rendition in matching frames and present to your grandparents.

* Letter Writing. Write a letter to your grandparents, telling them all of the things you love and appreciate about them. Tell them about things you have learned from them, and special memories that you have. Decorate the letter with a border of small pictures and designs in the margins.

* Memory Box. Create a special keepsake by having each member of the family write a down a special story or memory about your grandparents on index cards. Store the cards in a decorated recipe box; making it easy to add more stories.

* Family Newsletter. Write monthly updates on your family's activities and achievements, and send them to your grandparents. Present the inaugural edition on Grandparent's Day, then send an updated edition each month!

* Listen and Talk. Spend the day with your grandparents and do nothing but listen and talk. Listen to their stories about what their childhood years were like; the friends they have; what it was like to have children, then grandchildren. Tell them about your best friend; places you want to visit; awards you've won; silly jokes you've heard. This is a great way to get to know each other better.
