“Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do” grandparents are full of caring deeds, wonderful stories, laughter and love. Here in the UK we celebrate grandparents day this Sunday the 2nd October. My little boy’s (that’s him above) grandparents are down to earth, hands on and overwhelmingly altruistic with their time. Here are a few ideas we have planned for the weekend to show them just how important they are to our family.
- Making a Grandparents day card together. The gift of time is certainly as precious as any monetary item. My son loves getting the art and crafts box out. So we have designed a card with all our hand prints on the cover and two poems inside one for grandad and my favourite one “Nana’s Wings”.
Nana, I wonder
where you keep your wings.
Are they hung in your closet
with the rest of your things?
Do you put them away
and just use them at night
or give them to Rosie
to polish up bright.
I know you have wings,
for this must be true,
‘because they always are given
to Angels like you.

2. Plant a grandparents shrub or bush together. I have been thinking about planting a blueberry bush ever since I discovered you can grow them in the UK. My 5-year-old son Leon loves to help with any gardening, in particular digging holes for the plants, watering and looking for earthworms to rescue — So on Sunday we are planting a blueberry bush, my son strangely remembers all the bulbs and plants he and my mother plant together so I’m sure planting nana and grandad’s blueberry bush will become no less special.
3. A home picnic with a special book. Our home picnics are simply a family gathering with a little added sparkle. So banners, flowers and their favourite foods followed by an opulent dessert. To end the day I found a book called Me & My Grandparents (as it is grandparent’s day!) it’s from a lovely series by Jedda Robaards. I’ve also got a little surprise for each of them a cozy butterscotch knit and some new walking boots for grandad.
Do you have any plans for grandparents day?
