Did you know that September 11th is National Grandparents Day? I remember celebrating it each year with my Grandparents when I was little. From 1st – 3rd grade, my school celebrated Grandparents Day by having our Grandparents come to school with us so we could share our projects hanging on the wall, and so they could meet our teacher and see what we have been learning. We would also give them a special Grandparents Day Craft that we made just for them! After our fun morning at school my Grandparents and I would pick up my mom and go out for a special lunch to celebrate more.
When my son came home from school on Thursday with a cute little craft he made just for his Grandparents, I was reminded of this very special day and wanted to create a craft of our own. Here is a quick and easy Grandparents Day craft that you can make with your little one to help them celebrate their Grandparents!
