6 crafts for Grandparents Day
Picture puzzle. Grab your favorite family photo. Make a copy and line the copy up on popsicle sticks. Cut evenly, jumble up the pieces and you have a cute little puzzle for grandma and grandpa to put together.
Flower petal frame. I like this simple, sweet idea for a craft that let's Nana and Pop-Pop do what they like to do best - show off pictures of their grandkids.
Handprint canvas. I know several grannies and grandads that would absolutely adore this canvas keepsake. Little kids will certainly need some help, but I'm sure they will have no problem volunteering to do the handprints!
Handmade cards. One of the best presents you can give any grandparent is a craft made by their favorite grandchildren. This link has a number of cute handmade card ideas to choose from and most are simple enough for even the youngest grandkids to help with.
Silhouettes. Here is a unique way to give your grandparents a picture of the grandchildren without it being just another photo in a frame. Silhouette pictures of capture a moment in time even better than most cheesy photos. The hard part is taking a photo of your kids that is a true profile and not angled to one-side or the other. Thank goodness for digital cameras and smartphones!
Family tree. Ah, the quintessential family heirloom gift. Bottom line: If you have little kids, they will love making this. And if you have grandparents, they will love receiving it.
Have a happy day!
