More activities.....

I'm sorry. I've been a slacker this week. Grandpa's test are finally over for now, we just have to wait for results. I haven't been sleeping well and I'm on the verge of exhaustion, so this is going to be a short one. I promise to get back to business now.

Crackers has been adding to her list of things for grandparents and grandchildren to do together.
  • Share family history. Look at old family photos and tell stories of the people in them.
  • Build a bug box (tutorial is upcoming) and look for bugs together. When you find one that is unfamiliar to you, look it up on the internet or at the library.
  • Draw pictures together.
  • Have them tell you their favorite story.
  • Cut pictures from magazines. Use them to teach colors, shapes, counting, etc.
  • Write a funny story together. One of you starts with a silly sentence and then build on it. Take turns adding to the story.
  • Build with blocks or legos. Tinker toys are fun, too. They will be thrilled that you took the time to build with them instead of just watching.
  • Talk about fire safety. Draw a plan of your house and map out your escape routes. Choose a place to meet ion case everyone has to leave the house in a hurry.
  • Make a menu and a grocery list together.
  • Make a card for someone.
  • Look up the events that happened on the day you were born or the day your grandchild was born.
  • Put an ice cube in a bowl outside and see how long it takes to melt.
  • Cook dinner together.
  • Hide a treasure together and then draw a map to lead someone else to it.
  • Practice printing or cursive with your grandchildren. Keep a sample from each year for them to look back at someday.

    That's it for today. That dotee doll tutorial is coming up right away, so don't give up. And some more rock projects, too. Lots of fun! Goodbye for now and love to all
