A Handbook For Grandparents
Over 700 Creative Things To Do And Make With Your Grandchild
Are you a grandparent looking to connect with your grandchild? A parent looking to help your own parents connect with your children? Are you looking for activities to do with your grandkids that are not only fun, but also educational? With over 700 different creative and educational crafts and activities, from imaginative rainy day activities to tasks designed to help with difficult transitions, the projects in this handbook will give you the tools to connect with your grandchildren and meaningfully impact their growth and development. With increasingly longer life expectancies in our society, children are able to have longer and more meaningful relationships with their grandparents, and they can have fun while they’re doing it! Speaking to the need for positive intergenerational relationships in today’s families, A Handbook for Grandparents is your comprehensive guide to helping your grandchildren grow and develop in a positive way.
Wilson has clearly understood the importance of developmentally appropriate experiences for young children. Her hands-on play based approach provides grandparents with an opportunity to build strong and loving relationships. I was especially pleased to see her focus on outdoor experiences which underscores our need to spend more time in nature.
Patricia Chorney Rubin, Director, School of Early Childhood, George Brown College
A Handbook for Grandparents is a wonderful resource full of developmentally appropriate play ideas that are fun and engaging for both children and adults. No expensive gadgets or screens are needed to support children’s development, build relationships and promote mutual enjoyment. Wilson’s book is pure refreshment for those who want to forge meaningful relationships with their grandchildren and support their children’s parenting.
