Grandparents Day

When is Grandparents Day?

Does it really matter? Can you actually name a day when kids wouldn't love to do something nice for their grandparents or when grandparents wouldn't like to receive something nice from their grandkids? You can use everything on this page all year long.

The official date for National Grandparent's Day in the United States can be found here.

Sad Fact

According to grandparents.com, although 72% of grandparents think being a grandparent is the single most important and satisfying thing in their life, 66% of grandparents have never celebrated grandparents day!

To be clear, it would be totally impractical to try to do all of these grandparents activities at once. Rather, this pack can serve as your "go-to" place for a quick, no-prep activity when you want to practice a particular writing skill - and do something nice for grandparents at the same time!
