Celebrating your grandparents is a beautiful thing, and there are so many ways to do it! Grandparents Day is on September 9, and it's a great time to pull out the board games and the knitting needles and pull your grandparent close. Here are 5 ways to celebrate Grandparents Day.
1. Plan a Simple Visit
If your grandparent lives away from home, make the effort to go visit them on Grandparent's Day. Bring along something for you both to do like games or a good book you can read to them. Seeing your face will most likely be all they really need to make their day special.
2. Have a Picnic in the Park
These days, it's likely your grandma or grandpa doesn't get much time outside, so grab the picnic basket and throw in some old favorites to remind them of the happy memories they spent their lives making. Bring a blanket and an activity you know they'll love—kite flying or a game of chess. You could also opt to have the family take turns giving handmade or personalized gifts.
3. Plant a Garden
If your grandparent has a green thumb, get some gardening tools and help them start that garden they've been itching to grow. You can start growing herbs, vegetables, and fruit, or simply plant flowers if that's what they'd prefer.
4. Host a Movie Night
Grab a family favorite, pop some popcorn and gather around the big screen for an extra special movie night. Let your grandparents pick out their favorite movie to make them feel special.
5. Bake a Special Treat
If you've got a sweet tooth you could've only gotten from grandma or grandpa, have them over to bake a family favorite, such as cookies, brownies, or rice cereal treats. You'll be sure to warm their hearts as well as your belly.
Grandparents Day is a great time to show your loved ones how much you love them and appreciate them.
