Good Morning and Welcome to April!!
There’s no “fool”ing around on this blog, just ideas to inspire you to make beautiful things!!
So, I am the lucky grandparent (Nana) to 3 beautiful girls and a little boy. A year or so ago – my son, his wife, and the 3 girls moved away from where we live to another state. A couple months after they had moved, I planned a trip to spend time with them and spoil them and whatnot.
I knew that I wanted to make meaningful, beautiful memories with them so I carefully planned some activities to do and treats to have. I started with a theme – crayons and colors. I started by making a chart that had crayon stickers on popsicle sticks which the girls would pull out of the crayon box one at a time when it was activity time. We did them typically mid-morning, after nap, and after dinner. Each color crayon corresponded to a color activity package to open. The chart is pictured here:
And here are the color packages wrapped and ready to go:
One of the funnest thing about these packages was coming up with colored treats to match! Here is what I came up with :
In each package I tried to include something we could do together – a puzzle, a folder game, a sticker book, pictures to color, bubbles,a matching game, sorting games and so on. Many ideas I adapted from ones I had seen on Pinterest and also I scoured the Dollar Tree and the Target Dollar Spot for fun items to put in the packages.
I am thrilled to say that the girls had fun with all that we did and I feel blessed that I was able to make beautiful memories with them.
I am off to visit them next week so I am coming up with a new theme, a chart, and matching treats and activities to do with them this time. I hope that they feel special and realize how much their Nana cares for them. I plan to do a post next week of whatever fun & beautiful times we have.
Happy Tuesday and Welcome to April!!
I am thankful for all of you and that’s no “fool”ing!!!
