Grandparent Day is Sunday, September 10. There’s nothing quite like the special bond between grandma/grandpa and grandchild. Below are some special activities that grandparents and grandchildren can enjoy together—and create lifelong memories at the same time.

  1. Play journalist.School-aged children might enjoy getting to know their grandparents’ history in a Q-and-A style interview. For example, some questions might be: What was life like before cellphones and computers? How did you meet Grandma or Grandpa? What was your favorite subject in school? Bonus: Record the interview and make it in to a presentation to share with family.
  2. Get outside. Michigan is home to trails, parks and other natural resources. Challenge your child to unplug and get out for a few hours with Grandma or Gramps.
  3. Make something.Whatever the medium, grandparents and grandchildren can spend the day channeling their creative sides. From baking to jewelry, to scrapbooking and coloring, there’s something for every age group and interest. Don’t forget to capture the moment with photos!
  4. Share a meal together. Nothing brings people together like food. LumberJack Food & Spiritsin West Branch is kid friendly and Grandma approved. Come for breakfast, lunch or dinner and prepare to leave with a full belly!

Celebrate National Grandparents Day and make memories as precious as your children!
