Grandparents Day is on Sunday 2nd October in the UK. Those of my readers who are in the US, your Grandparents Day is coming up a bit sooner than ours, on the 11th September. Perfect time to show your grandparents what they mean to you. Here’s a few anecdotes on why you kids should be grateful for your grandparents.
You can tell them secrets that you wouldn’t tell your parents. They will keep your secrets too!
They are always up for fun. Whether that’s den building out of the sofas and some blankets or a picnic in the park. They will do almost anything with you.
Grandparents have some great stories to tell. Even if you think you’ve heard them a hundred times, you’ll want to hear them again and again. Although some stories may not be true. Grandparents like to bend the truth when telling stories to little ones. You have been warned.
Some grandparents have allotments or veg patches in the garden. You can enjoy some of their scrummy fare, knowing they grew this for you personally.
Grandparents are often retired so will have a bit more time than working parents. That means they may let take things at more your pace than your normal routine. They will also have more patience, so they will listen to your stories or songs over and over again.
Grandparents know everything. They are literally better than Google! But again, be wary of whether it’s the truth or a trick aimed at the young ones.
They love to feed you up. It’s all good, home-cooked foods too. And dessert, there’s always dessert.
Grandparents will let you stay up later than your parents will and will also let you eat a bedtime snack.
They’ll always be proud of their grandchildren. No matter how small the achievement, it’ll always be the best thing in the world.
If the grandchildren are feeling a bit under the weather, a day with the grandparents will make them feel a million times better.
There’s really not much you can do to stop your grandparents loving you. But best not to test this one. Just be a great grandchild and you’ll never have to worry.
So bearing those in mind, you should spoil your grandparents on their special day. Our friends over at Chums have put together this fantastic infographic about how you can spoil your grandparents this Grandparents Day. Take a look. What are you going to do for them this year?
