National Grandparent’s Day Keepsake Crafts by Age

child grandparents

Celebrate National Grandparent’s Day with a cute keepsake craft. Not only are these artsy activities fun for the kids, but they give grandma and grandpa something to treasure. If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind gift that the grandparents will adore, check out these crafty projects by age.

Babies

Even though your baby can’t actually make the art herself, she can help you to create a keepsake. How? Paint her feet with tempera and press them onto a piece of card stock paper. Of course, wash her feet off completely afterwards. Cut the paper out in the shape of a heart and write “Happy Grandparent’s Day!” on it, along with the date.

Toddlers

Use air dry clay to create a handprint keepsake for the grandparents. Give your child a rolling pin and have her flatten the clay. Then, press both of her hands into it. You can use the side of a craft stick to ‘write’ the date and a special message. Let the clay dry completely. If your child wants to paint it, break out the temperas and add a rainbow of colors.

Preschoolers

Fold a piece of card stock paper in half to make a cute card. Your preschooler can draw a picture of the grandparents on the front and write a special message inside.

Older Kids

Design a photo collage for grandma and grandpa. Have your child look through photos, choosing at least a dozen from different times. Pick photos that feature celebrations and everyday moments. Use clear-drying glue to collage them onto a piece of cardboard.
