Spending Quality Time With Grandchildren
Not only does life fly by and grandchildren grow quick but our world moves at a pace like never before. With constant electronic distractions it can be hard to connect with loved ones. Especially ones generations apart! Today we are talking about slowing down and finding ways to spend special time with those kiddos!
Hobbies are a great way to keep their hands off the phone and on something new and meaningful! Setting a time aside when it's just you and them to learn a new skill can certainly bring you closer! Here are a few ideas to explore!
- A new instrument
- Start a new book together ( Grandparent bookclub!)
- Tell stories of when you were a kid
- Cook a weekly meal or share a special family recipe
- Walk the dog together
- Start a large puzzle
If you aren't looking to learn a new skill how about set activities you can do together. Something as simple as a coffee date every other week with older grandchildren or a special lunch can open up time to talk and learn! Here are a few more ideas that don't require learning a new skill!
- Nature walk
- Museum trip
- The movies
- A play
- The zoo
- Musical performances
Whatever you decide to do the time you spend togther is sure to inhance your realtionship and overall health!
