 Celebrating Grandparents on Grandparents Day, September 7th– In September, we will celebrate a wonderful family holiday, National WheelbarrowBabyGrandparents Day. Celebrated on the first Sunday after Labor Day, the holiday was created to remind grandchildren to tap into the wisdom and heritage their grandparents provide. There are many fun activities that your children can do with their grandparents to celebrate the holiday. One is to complete a grandparent interview with a variety of questions. What were your parents like? Describe your childhood? What were your goals and aspirations? What advice do you want to pass onto your children and grandchildren? This will give your children a chance to see how the world has changed since their grandparents were young, plus give your parents an opportunity to share stories. Capture this on video and you will have a priceless family keepsake that will be enjoyed for generations to come. 

Letters from Grandma SetThe Letters from Grandma Set is a wonderful way to celebrate Grandma, while giving your child a written chronicle of stories, thoughts and wisdom. Grandma can share her special recipes, spiritual beliefs and most cherished moments to create something that will be her legacy for generations to come. Your child is able to ask important questions, document pinnacle experiences and generally capture the wonderful magic of growing up. It will certainly be passed down to give future generations a wonderful story of the early and late years of living and loving.

“A grandmother in Forth Worth, purchased the Letters from Grandmas Set and used them for the week her grandchildren came to visit during the summer. On the top of each page of the Letters to Grandma she wrote a question of the day such as, ‘Tell me about your best friend at school,’ ‘What is your favorite activity’ or ‘Tell me about the book you are reading and what you love about it.’ In turn, she had her grandchildren write a question of the day in her Grandma book and they wrote questions like, ‘How did you meet Grandpa?’ and ‘Who is your best friend?’ They started each day by journaling to each other and exchanged books at the end of the week, creating a wonderful memento of their time together.” ~ Carrie Ann Jones, Forth Worth, TX

This year, why not start a new family tradition to honor the grandparents in your life, who embody the September value of ‘Patience’?
