Grandparents Day is an officially –recognized national holiday that falls each year on the first Sunday after Labor Day. With this holiday, children have an opportunity to show their appreciation and love toward their grandparents, and grandparents feel valued as their role is recognized. Here are three simple personalized crafts your children can create that are sure to put a smile on any grandparent’s face!

Tell Grandma and Grandpa how great they are by making them this adorable foot print butterfly card. While your preschoolers may not be able to write, they can still make cards with words and special messages too! They may even learn something while they’re doing it!

Parents, here are several other “grand” ideas to help your family celebrate Grandparents Day this September:

This cute garden apron is a lot of fun and quite inexpensive to make. With a simple white apron, a couple of paint brushes and some acrylic paint from Michaels and of course your children’s imprints you can make this keepsake which any grandparent would love to have. You don’t need to be an artist to do this craft, just some patience to make sure the kids put their footprints and hand prints in the right locations. Use your children’s tootsies to make the butterflies and their hands for the flowers.

Give children an opportunity to show their appreciation and love for their grandparents, and likewise give grandparents an opportunity to show their love and caring for their grandchildren. Create a memory – an enjoyable, memorable experience for children and their grandparents. Spend an afternoon painting, go fishing, enjoy a special dinner, visit the park, or go to a museum. Honor them and give them validation in their role of grandparent. Grandparents like to know that they are making a difference in the lives of younger generations.

The idea of personalized pot holders is definitely not a new one, although it does make a great gift. Grandparent love these and they love putting them up in the kitchen for all to see! Dish towels also make great gifts. www.gulfcoastfamily.org

Give the grandparents a chance to share some of their life experiences with the kids. A sense of legacy is a basic human need. Create a home that remembers its history as it builds its future. Young and old can find wisdom and inspiration in each other.  Cherish the time you have together and do not take it for granted!
