6 Fun activities you can enjoy with your grandkids

Today's grandparents are more involved than ever, whether as childcare providers, weekend hosts, live-in family members, or visiting playmates. Here are some fun ideas for outings and activities to enjoy with your grandchildren:

  1. Nature Walk or Bird Watching - Take the kids to a nearby park to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature. Collect some treasures along the way, such as flowers and leaves, and make something special to remember your day. You can make the nature walk an educational by observing the ducks or other birds.

  2. Arts & Crafts - Most children love to get crafty! Take arts and crafts time a step further by making the supplies from scratch with the kids. You can start with a simple and easy craft like the rock-painting.

  3. Cooking & Baking - If you like to cook or bake, involve your grandkids in the kitchen. You can start with a fun and kid-friendly food like pizza or cupcakes.

  4. Gardening - Pass on your green thumb to your grandchild by growing berries, pumpkins, vegetables, or flowers together. Most kids get a kick out of using a watering can! Get your grandkid excited about gardening with their own set of tools.

  5. Playground Time - Hitting the playground with an energetic child is a great way for you both to get exercise! Just be prepared for hours of "Push me! Push me!" if your youngster gets hooked!

  6. Teach a Hobby - Whether you're into fishing, knitting, or anything in between, your grandchild will love learning a new hobby or skill from you. Look for books or websites with information on introducing kids to your hobby.
