National Grandparent’s Day Kids’ Activities

National Grandparent’s Day is September 13. Founded by Marian McQuade, a housewife from West Virginia, this celebration was proclaimed a holiday in 1978 by President Jimmy Carter. Whether you’re a grandparent or you’re a parent who wants your child to spend time with grandma and grandpa, you have plenty of options for this very special day!

Pack a Picnic

Even preschoolers can help put together a picnic lunch for grandma and grandpa. Make sandwiches, toss together a salad (the kids can tear lettuce and mix a homemade dressing) and bake cookies or cupcakes to take as dessert.

Create a Craft

Snap a pic of the kids with their grandparents and print out for them. Have everyone (grandma, grandpa and the children) work on a popsicle stick picture frame. Glue the sticks in a rectangle shape on a thick piece of cardboard. Secure the photo behind it with clear tape.

Have a Story-time

Give the grandparents a book (or, if you’re the grandparent – pick a book) that interests the children. Set up a story-time nook at home, filling it with a comfy chair and pillows for the kids to sit on. Read the book with the children or have the whole gang act it out.

Plant a Tree

Commemorate this holiday with a Grandparent’s Day tree or plant. Start with a seed, seedling or full-grown flowering plant. Pick a place in the yard and get the growing started by planting the tree together.
