I never knew grandparents' day was even a thing until last year and in case this is news to you too... YES there is a Grandparents' Day! In the US and Canada, it is celebrated on the first Sunday after Labor day, and this year that is September 12, 2021.
I was so thrilled to find out about this holiday because I don't know about you, but I can think of very few people that deserve to be celebrated more than these angels on earth. My parents and my in-laws are so supportive and loving, the list of things we appreciate about each of them goes on and on. And who doesn't love a good excuse for a family get together?!
I was struggling with meaningful ways to show our love and appreciation for Grandparents day and I thought you guys might be too and would appreciate a list of easy, affordable ways to spread the love this year.
1) Grandparents Day Celebration Brunch
Host a little brunch for all the grandparents, kids, and grandkids. To make it extra special you could choose one dish that the grandparents and grandkids could assemble or make together just before its time to eat.
2) Make a Photo book with the kids
I love the idea of sitting the kids down and making a homemade photo book. You could get out the construction paper, or an actual photo album and add some of your kids favorite photos of themselves and their grandparents along with little notes of love or memories.
If you like the idea of something more polished, another great option is a service like ChatBooks or similar. https://chatbooks.com/photo-books
