Grandparents have a special connection with their grandkids, and that relationship should be nourished. This Grandparent’s Day, celebrate with the seniors in your life by taking a little extra time to be with them.
If you don’t know what to do to celebrate this special day, read our tips, then get creative!
Write a Letter for Grandparent’s Day
Most seniors don’t need a fancy present – they usually have what they need. What’s truly special is sentiment.
Write a letter to your own grandparents, or have your kids write to your parents. Tell them what you love about them or remind them of a special memory that means something to you. They’ll be touched that you thought of them, and they’re sure to enjoy a stroll down memory lane.
Spend Grandparent’s Day With Them
As we mentioned before, most seniors don’t really need anything. Instead, dedicate the day to them (or at least a lunch!). Gather the kids around and ask about their lives. Take them for a walk or watch their favorite movie.
If you’re worried about Covid, try a digital meeting instead! Either video call or set up a Zoom meeting. The important thing is to spend time with them.
Make a Photo Craft
Most seniors love being reminded of happy memories, and they adore having pictures of their loved ones. Find some good pictures of you, your kids, your parents or grandparents, and make a photobook for them.
Alternatively, you can order premade gifts online that you can customize with a photo. This can be anything from a keychain to a coffee mug to a blanket. Pick what you think they’d like!
Grandparent’s Day only comes once a year and it’s a great time to make your grandparents or parents feel special. While you’re at it, you should consider giving yourself the gift of senior care. A little bit of professional help can make any holiday that much more special!
