Games We Play
Welcome back to “That Very Special Relationship,” my series of blog posts exploring the relationship between a grandmother and her grandchild. One of my readers recently wrote in:
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your blog! It's my fave! I was wondering: What are some activities that you would recommend I do with my grandchildren? (They're coming to visit me three weeks from now.)
Hi, Josephine. So
glad you asked! I love the activities that allow for
a lot of one-on-one face time. With my grandchildren, I look forward to playing card games. I just know they will love playing Gin Rummy. Card games will help me teach them long-lasting lessons about being a good sport and always playing fair. And it will allow us
to bond over a shared interest.
Looking for other activity suggestions? Here are five:
- Paint watercolor portraits.
- Set up a lemonade stand.
- Build a birdhouse.
- Teach him or her how to play marbles.
- Stare at clouds.
