Donna Erickson joins us to share creative ideas on how to engage in artful grandparenting. Donna’s ideas are listed below:
- Create and assemble a “dress-up” box.
- Crafting and cooking together “Tray” tip. Avoid the mess and feeling overwhelmed with crafts and use a tray.
- Craft a Countdown to Valentine’s Day box – make and use an “in-house” Valentine box from now until Valentine’s Day with tablet on top for writing kind and affirming comments about family members. Open box together on Valentine’s Day, read the notes, and enjoy the smiles.
- Valentine’s “gift” flower arrangement – kids can assist in making an arrangement for someone special.
