Know a grandparent’s favourite food? Try making some for them as a way to say thank you! There are many easy foods that can be made without heat and with very little adult supervision so that kids can proudly say that the meal was made by them. See a few of them here.
Record a performance
For those who don’t live with their grandparents, there are a few fun moments that they would want to witness if they were in the same space. Consider recording a short video message or a performance of the kids singing a fun song or a song they know so that they can rewatch it whenever they wish.
Go for a walk together

Having so much life experience, grandparents have lots of stories to share and childhood memories too. Ask them questions about the family history, find out shared memories and finish the conversation being even closer than before.
