I am so blessed to be able to live in such a wonderful place as this for the past 21 months. The food is great, the staff is so helpful and friendly, and the other residents are great people. We have so many activities here so we never get bored or lonely. Another thing I enjoy here is the weekly housekeeping service; I don't have to clean the bathroom, vacuum, or change the bed linens anymore. I can enjoy all of the fun things and they take care of the work!
Fun Activities To Do With Grandkids Back
Time spent with your grandchildren is always something to be cherished and celebrated! While you might be happy just to sit and talk with them, kids often seek more exciting ways to connect. Ready to be the cool grandparent? Here are a few fun activities to do with your grandkids!
- Get Baking!
If your strengths are in the kitchen, this is a perfect opportunity to teach your grandkids a few of your favorite recipes! Whether you aim for simple treats like chocolate chip cookies or more complex delights like pineapple upside-down cakes, it’s important to make sure your grandkids play a significant part in creating the dish. This will help them feel engaged in what you’re doing and will help to keep their attention. Not only will you bond over the joys of baking, but the skills they learn with you will stick with them forever. Not to mention, you’ll end up with a delicious treat and very happy grandkids!
- Card Games!
Chances are, you’ve gained a few card tricks up your sleeve over the years. Put those talents to use by entertaining your grandkids! Whether you know magic tricks, card games, or just classic Go Fish, if you have a deck of cards, there are so many things you can do! After the card games are done, try building a pyramid out of cards, or make a target and try to fling cards towards the bullseye. Depending on the age of your grandchild, poker may be a fun choice. Whatever card option appeals to you the most, your grandchildren will love these awesome games!
- Get Crafty!
There’s nothing kids love more than fun colors, cool shapes, and accessing their inner artist! Gather some simple art supplies (markers, construction paper, crazy scissors, glue, glitter, etc.) and start getting creative! You and your grandchildren can create beautiful masterpieces, placemats, paper airplanes, and much more. Helping your grandkids express themselves through art is a great way to get them to love coming over!
No matter what you decide to do with your grandchildren, always remember to make the most of your time together through laughs, smiles, and fun!
