And there is not a gift that reaches so much the hearts of the old people that homemade crafts made by your grandchildren. For this reason, here are some ideas that children could give their grandparents as gifts.
Children love to make crafts and grandparents and grandmothers love receiving creations from their grandchildren. Therefore, we suggest you some DIY projects that they will succeed as a Grandparents Day gift. All of them are very simple to make and can be customized so that your grandparents like them even more.
1. Case to store glasses or carry tissues
If, in addition to being made by the children of the house, the gift is practical, you will be twice as successful. We suggest you make a nice cover to store glasses or scarves that grandparents and grandmothers will like a lot. Use felt of his favorite color.
2. Bouquet of paper flowers
The advantage of giving grandparents some paper flowers is that they will always look pretty and they will never wither. Do you know how to make the flowers? It is very simple, you just have to go gathering the pinocchio paper and placing it on a wire. You may need to use pliers, so we recommend that an adult always do it.
3. Personalized keychain for grandpa or grandma
So that you will never forget your house keys again and so that every time you look at them you will remember your precious grandson or granddaughter, make a fun felt keychain for him! It can be great if you make it in the shape of a house or a car (depending on the type of keys for which you are going to use it), but you can also customize it according to your tastes.
4. Eva rubber tablet sleeve
Today's grandparents are more modern than ever. Many of them already have a tablet. If this is the case of your yayo or yaya, you can make a case for the ipad using eva rubber. It is a very simple craft that makes for a very useful gift.
5. Photo frame with fabric
What grandfather would not like to receive a photo frame with the images of his grandchildren? We suggest you make a photo frame with fabric (although you can make it of different materials) as a triptych, so you can put photos of all the children in the family.

In many countries Grandparents' Day is celebrated on the day July 26 because it is the Day of Santa Ana and San Joaquín, the grandparents of Jesus. However, in other countries like Mexico they have chosen the August 28 for the celebration. No matter the day, the important thing is to thank the grandparents and grandmothers for all the care they have given us and give us. It is a journey in which we think of the elderly (also those who are not from our family) who often live alone.
And is that children can learn a lot from grandparents: of his wisdom and of his experience. Even in cases where children cannot live with their parents and move in with their grandparents, these are the best comfort and confidence they could receive, as outlined in Child's 'How to Raise Your Grandchildren' Welfare of the United States government.
That's why it's always a good idea to celebrate Grandparents' Day. And then we give you some ideas for activities to make it an unforgettable day.
- Organize a poetry recital in which the grandchildren read poems invented by themselves or inspired by other authors. It will be even more special if all the poems talk about grandparents and their big hearts.
- Deliver a card May we accompany with a very beautiful dedication in which we express all our love.
