National Grandparent’s Day Keepsake Crafts by Age
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
