Celebrate National Grandparents Day with these Crafts!

In Children by Adam's Crossing Apartments

September 13th is National Grandparents Day! Our grandmas and grandpas always show us support and unconditional love, so it’s only right they have a day dedicated to them! These uncertain times have been difficult for everyone, particularly elderly people who may feel isolated from their families. These crafts for kids make for the perfect gift for grandparents on their special day. Get some inspiration and help your child create a beautiful piece of art for their grandparents!

Handprint Shrinky Dinks

This adorable craft for Handprint Shrinky Dinks by Crafty Morning is sure to brighten a grandparent’s day. Perfect for car keys, grandparents can always carry around a sweet memory of their grandkids anywhere they go! These crafts are simple to make, but children will need supervision. Turn the mini handprints into keychains, or add a magnet and stick them on the fridge!

Mail a Hug

If you can’t be with the grandparents on their special day, show them some love with this sweet craft. Mail a Hug by Wunder-Mom is the perfect way to show your care from afar! Using just felt, a ribbon, and glue, you will have an adorable gift to send in the mail.

Homemade Oven Mitts

Are Grandma and Grandpa into cooking? If so, they’ll love these homemade oven mitts by Teaching with Terhune. Buy any color oven mitt, and paint your child’s hand with fabric paint so that they can create a print on the mitt. If you want, you can write a short message on the mitt as well —perhaps their name and the date! This will be a keepsake that grandparents will cherish in the years to come.

Painted Rock Photo Holder

These Painted Rock Photo Holders by Buggy and Buddy are fun for the children to make, and they make for the perfect gift for grandparents. Have the kids pick out a rock to paint — the creative opportunities are endless! After the rock is painted, tie some wire around the rock and decorate it with colorful beads. You’ll create a loop for the photo holder, and ta-da! You have a beautiful, homemade photo holder. All you have to do now is pick which photo you want to use!
