Wednesday Tips #7

GP day 051

Those of you who have grandchildren attending kindergarten or pre-school may be lucky enough to receive an invitation to a Grandparents’ Day celebration. Many such institutions offer a chance over the period of a week or fortnight during the year for grandparents to join their grandchildren for a morning’s activities. It may be difficult to get to kinder by 9.00am on a cold, wet or frosty morning (especially if you have to drive across town in peak hour traffic), but to see your grandchild’s face light up as you walk through the door is well worth the effort.

Over the morning you can join in with the usual activities and meet your grandchild’s friends. You may play a card or board game together, help to build a cubby in the playground or waterworks in the sandpit, make a model together at the construction table, watch pet lizards or ducklings or share a book in the reading corner.

Whatever you do, you will be warmly welcomed with your grandchild  so proud to have a special guest to show around and share his/her world of work and play.

So, my tip this week is if you get the chance to attend a Grandparent’s Celebration, seize the day and enjoy!
